DIRECTIONS

  • In a glass bottle or jar, steep the chopped hazelnuts in the vodka for about 2 weeks in a cool, dark place, gently shaking the bottle every day.
  • Gently pour the jar's contents through a regular strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all of their flavor.
  • Follow this by two strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth.
  • For true clarity and professional looking results, pour the strained mixture through a large clean coffee filter placed inside a funnel or clean coffee cone; loosely cover with plastic wrap since the process may take several hours.
  • In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
  • Bring to a boil over moderately high heat.
  • Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Funnel the strained hazelnut mixture into a clean, sterilized, glass bottle and then funnel in the sugar syrup.
  • Cover tightly; shake to blend.
  • Let mature, at room temperature or slightly cooler, for at least three weeks.
