This Homemade Orange Extract is a great pantry addition and perfect gift made with love. With only two ingredients, the hardest part about this recipe is waiting for it to be done!
Debbie, one of our wonderful group members decided to share her take on this zesty treat! You can see Debbie's posts and progress in our private Facebook group, Making Vanilla Extract by VanillaPura.
In Debbie's pictures and in her own words, here is how she makes her own, homemade orange extract:
- 8 Ounces of Everclear- 190 diluted with distilled water
- Zest of 3 Oranges
1. I clean my oranges with vinegar and water along with my Norwex fruit veggie cloth.
2. Strain the extract coffee filter when the orange zest starts to lose its color. Replace zest and repeat process 3 times over a 3-4 month period.
