I started with a gluten-free potato vodka.
I crushed 1 t organic green cardamom pods and 1 t black caraway seeds in a mortar then placed all of that with 1 lb deseeded medjool dates in a small saucepan. I covered it with vodka - just enough to submerge the dates - and heated the mixture until it just began to steam. I placed all of that plus the remainder of the vodka in a large glass container. Cover and let the mixture age in a cool place for 10 days. Stir once or twice.
Strain the liqueur into a colander over a large bowl. Discard fruits and spices. Strain through cheesecloth and pour into bottles. I'll let you know in a couple of weeks how it turns out, but how can you go wrong with these ingredients?
It seems to be The real taste of Thibarine!ReplyDelete
Hello, how much vodka did you use, please? :-)ReplyDelete
Will be giving this a try! Received some as a gift and sad to discover there's no way to buy more. Delicious stuff.ReplyDelete
