     HOMEMADE TANGERINE LIQUEUR

                     This recipe is outstanding and makes a wonderful

                     gift, as well as being an inexpensive alternative to

                                 purchased tangerine liqueur.

                 Ingredients:

                    6 tangerines

                    1 1/4 cups sugar

                    1/2 cup water

                    1 quart vodka

   Method:

    1.  Remove rinds from tangerines and scrape and discard white pith from

    the inside.

    2.  Set rinds on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and place in a heated 250*

    oven and turn off heat. Leave in oven for 2 hours.

    3.  Open oven door ajar and leave rinds in there overnight.

    4.  Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly until

    sugar dissolves. Let cool, then stir in 2 cups vodka.

    5. Stir to dissolve any sugar, add remaining vodka and stir again.

    6.  lace dried tangerine rinds in a half gallon jar or glass container that has

    a screw cap. Pour in sugar, vodka mixture. Shake to mix.

    7.  Seal tightly and let stand in a dark place for 4 weeks. Strain through a

    coffee filter into a sterilized bottle. Seal or cork. Makes 1 quart.

 

 

OPTIONAL: Depending on preference, may substitute vodka for brandy.

 

NOTE: Even an, almost, undetectable hint of scent can ruin the liqueur flavor.

                 Wash containers EXTREMELY WELL and dry completely.

     Our environment and surroundings play a huge part in how we feel on a day-to-day basis. Think about it. When your home is messy, chaotic, cluttered, and filled with piles, how do you feel?   more »

 

    

     Whether we live at the shore or not, when we truly love the ocean... we are forever captured by a longing for the coastal life, for those ocean breezes and long salty walks on wet clean sand.

     For the majority of us, however, living the coastal life simply isn’t possible, but bringing the charm of a coastal habitat into our own land-locked city dwelling, now that is possible. And with a little ingenuity, know-how and knowledge… decorating our spaces with a coastal feel and look is something we can do easily and inexpensively.  more »
