Homemade Orange Extract

May 22, 2016


  • 1 orange, zest, organic
  • 1 cup vodka


  1. Place zest in jar and top with vodka.
  2. Let set for about 2 months in a cool dark place.
  3. Give it a good shake occasionally.
  4. Strain the zest if desired.

Notes:  It is important to choose organic oranges since you are using the skin.  Mandarin oranges make an excellent extract as well.  If you use cheaper vodka, you can improve its quality by first filtering it several times through a Brita-type drinking water filter to remove any impurities.
