Hazelnut liqueur 2

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Hazelnuts -- finely
Chopped
1½ cup Vodka
⅓ cup Sugar
3 tablespoons Water
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

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 contents through a strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all the flavor.

Follow this by 2 strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth or large coffee filter; loosely cover the contents 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 moderate-high heat.

Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in the vanilla.

Funnel into a glass bottle, the funnel in the sugar syrup. Cover tightly; shake to blend. Let mature at room temperature, or slightly cooler, for at leat 3 weeks.

Homemade version of Frangelico. "Glorious Liqueurs" Mary Morris.
