Amaretto Liqueur Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
2 dried apricot halves
1 tbsp almond extract
1/2 cup pure grain alcohol and
1/2 cup water
1 cup brandy
3 drop yellow food coloring
6 drop red food coloring
2 drop blue food coloring
1/2 tsp glycerin

Recipe Preparation

Combine sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil,
stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer until all sugar is
dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.

In an aging container, combine apricot halves, almond extract, grain
alcohol with 1/2 cup water, and brandy. Stir in cooled sugar syrup
mixture. Cap and let age for 2 days. Remove apricot halves. (Save
apricot halves, as they may be used for cooking). Add food coloring
and glycerin. Stir, recap and continue aging for 1 to 2 months.

Re-bottle as desired. Liqueur is ready to serve but will continue to
improve with additional aging.

Variation: For a more prominent 'bitter almond' flavor, add 4 apricot
nuts,** split in half, to basic mixture. Leave in for 2 days to 2
weeks depending upon depth of flavor desired. Remove and discard
apricot nuts. Continue as directed.

**Note: Apricot 'nuts' come from within the apricot pit. You may
split pits yourself or obtain them dried at a health food store.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with splenda. Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of splenda. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work in every case, but it does a decent job once you have it cracked.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)

The onion family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is insufficient hard medical proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss program.
