Homemade Apricot Extract
Homemade apricot extract can be used to give foods an apricot taste when they are out of season, or to intensify the flavor of dishes that contain apricots. This works perfectly in my Apricot Ice Cream, recipe at the blog.
Recipe type: Flavoring
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 6 fresh ripe apricots
  • 4 dehydrated apricots
  1. Pit the apricots and set the seeds to one side, you'll be using them to make the extract.
  2. Place halved fresh apricots and dried apricots into the vodka.
  3. Crack open the seeds and place the shells and inner kernel into the vodka with the apricots.
  4. Cover and let sit in a dark cupboard at room temperature for 3-4 weeks.
  5. When it smells strongly of apricots, strain the mixture.
  6. Pour the extract into a bottle. If you wish, place the kernels and the dehydrated apricots in with the extract. I like to think it will continue to flavor the extract.
