- 2 small organic lemons, or 1 large lemon
- 1 cup vodka
Zest lemons. Try not to include the pith; it’s bitter.
Place zests in a jar, and cover with vodka.
Screw the lid on the jar, and store in a cool, dark place for at least two weeks (longer is even better).
Transfer your finished lemon extract (minus the zest) to brown glass bottles.
- Make non-alcoholic extract, by swapping out the vodka called for with three parts food-grade liquid glycerin and one part water.
