      Title: Orange Brandy
 Categories: 
      Yield: 1 1/2 pints
 
      4 md Navel oranges
      1 md Lemon
      3 c  Brandy*
  1 1/2 c  Superfine sugar; purchased
           .. or homemade*
      8 dr Yellow food coloring; opt.
      1 dr Red food coloring; opt.
      1 ts Glycerine; opt.
 
  Rinse and dry the oranges and the lemon. Use the
  shredding side of a cheese grater to scrape only
  the orange part off the oranges; be careful not to
  scrape off the white, bitter part. Scrape the peel
  off half the lemon the same way. Put the orange
  and lemon zests in a glass jar; add the brandy.
  Seal tightly and let steep for 3 days in a cool,
  shaded place, shaking the jar once a day.
  
  Strain the flavored brandy into a clean bowl;
  whisk in the sugar until it dissolves and the
  mixture clears. Stir in the optional colorings and
  glycerine. Pour the liquid into a clean glass
  bottle, or bottles, seal tightly, and allow to
  mature for at least a week before using. Store at
  room temperature.
  
  Note: To make superfine sugar, whirl 1 1/4 cups
  regular granulated sugar in a food processor or in
  two batches in a blender at highest speed, until
  fine but not powdered. This will yield 1 1/2 cups
  superfine sugar.
  
  A mixture of 2 cups brandy and 1 cup vodka may
  also be used.
 
MMMMM
