    duonyte's Note:

    From Sunset 12/12 issue. I love orange bitters, but did not think you could really make it yourself. I have not tried this yet, but am looking forward to trying. This will keep up to one year refrigerated.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 250 deg F. Remove zest from oranges with a vegetable peeler. (Use oranges for some other purpose). Bake until zest dries, starts to curl up and begins to brown, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool.
    2. 2
      Put all ingredients except sugar in a 1 quart glass jar and seal tightly. Let sit in a cool, dark place for two weeks.
    3. 3
      Strain liquid into a 1 1/2 to 2 quart jar, saving the flavorings. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Put flavorings in a small saucepan with 2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
    5. 5
      Cook sugar in a small saucepan, lifting and shaking the pan occasionally, until the sugar caramelizes and turns deep amber, 8 to 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Pour the caramel into the liquid in the saucepan - it will bubble furiously and may firm up. If necessary, return to medium heat and cook, stirring, for a few minutes until the caramel melts.
    7. 7
      Set pan in a bowl of ice water until the liquid is cold, about 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      Pour this liquid into the jar with the first liquid (from step 3). Seal and let stand in a cool, dark place for five days.
    9. 9
      Strain this final mixture through cheesecloth into a glass measuring cup and discard the flavorings.
    10. 10
      Pour into small bottles and seal tightly.
