Orange Liqueur | The Southern Living Cookbook (1987 Edition)

From the Foods Staff of Southern Living magazine:
This homemade liqueur tastes amazingly like the bottled brand when stirred into recipes for beverages and desserts.

Orange Liqueur ingredients
Yields about 3 cups
3 medium-size oranges
3 cups brandy
1 cup honey


Peel oranges, leaving inner white skin on fruit. Cut orange rind into 2- x 1/4-inch strips. Reserve orange pulp for other uses. 

Combine brandy and orange rind in a jar. Cover tightly, and let stand at room temperature 3 weeks.

Remove orange rind; stir in honey. Let stand 3 days.

Strain off clear portion, and store in airtight containers; reserve cloudy portion for cooking.

This recipe is from The Southern Living Cookbook (Birmingham: Oxmoor House, Inc, 1987), 67.
