Recipe for orange peel tincture
Orange and lemon peels often end up in the waste bin. If you have a bottle of vodka and a piece of ginger root at hand, you can make a warming tincture that's perfect for autumn and winter evenings.
- the peels of two oranges or lemons
- 2 dag of fresh ginger root
- 0,7 l vodka
- approximately 0,25 kg of sugar
Combine citrus peels peeled of aldebo (white layer) with sliced ginger and infuse with alcohol for a week. After a week, pour off the liquor and sweeten as desired. You may not add sugar at all. This will produce a bitter, dry tincture. The tincture requires clarification for a month. As with any ginger liqueur, orange or lemon peel liqueur precipitates sediment and requires filtering.
