Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
One of my favorite ways to preserve citrus is by making boozy concoctions because the alcohol really captures the essence of the citrus fruit flavor. This is similar to Triple Sec, but so much cooler. And there is a cocktail recipe!
Good citrus only comes once a year, so I made Navel Orange Liqueur, also known as Triple Sec, with fresh orange juice and peel to preserve the flavor for summer cocktail season.
The leaves may be falling from the trees, but summer is still in our souls. This sassy little liqueur relies on whatever fruit is handy and has a spicy little kick that will keep you warm all winter.
Capture the tangy sweetness of satsumas in a jar. No need to wait for summer to enjoy this liqueur!
Winter citrus becomes triple sec for summer margaritas and grapefruit wine for - well - anytime.
Get ready for summertime cocktails and make your own triple sec. Quick! Before citrus season ends!
