I have been and bought some Seville Oranges today and I intend to have a few more when they restock I took the last of a box today. However marmalade is in store for this batch and also the Vin D'Orange that I have written about previously.
However I have been browsing and have come across this new recipe to me and which I intend to have a go at shortly. My argument is if you have a recipe and keep it safely you are creating your own Treasury of Recipes. This recipe is from a book called Pru's New Country Kitchen by Pru Coats. Its something slightly different to do with Seville Oranges. I just need to get the Vodka at the right price. I might also freeze the Seville Oranges whole so I can make this later on in the year.
4 Seville Oranges
4 pints vodka
1 1/2lb cane sugar
Peel the oranges and lemons very thinly taking care not to leave any pith on the zest. Place the zest into a 4 pint jar. Add the sugar and the vodka and cork tightly. Leave for at least three months in a dark cupboard, shaking occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Strain and pour into clean bottles.
Never tried it before but I do love orange flavoured liqueurs (I have made Orange Brandy before and that is equally nice) so I am looking forward to making this one.
Catch you later on
