Almond and Orange extracts. I figured it was about time to see how the experiments panned out! The almond, seen in this post, was a beautiful murky color. Just look at that color! It smelled wonderful too (once I opened the jar). I can't wait to try it out, possibly with this yummy almond apricot oatmeal scone recipe that I have. I may or may not post that recipe in an upcoming blog. Depends on if people want it!
See? Also, it was a tiny bit easier to strain, without the poky almonds. Still a pain, though. I will definitely be investing in a better filter system for when I strain my vanilla extract. Which, by the way, still has a few months left before I start playing with that one. The lovely orange extract filled up both of the Canton bottles, as well as most of another mini!
One of those ones will definitely be going to my sister to play with. Well, there you go, the first results of my initial two extracts! I won't be posting too much in the next month or two, unless I get a severe craft itch coming on. First, a trip to Minnesota to visit family and then we will be doing some serious moving, because by the time we get back we will only have a month left on our lease to find some new diggs.
Now to figure out what I want to make with some orange extract. Hmmm.... any suggestions?
