How many times have you been tempted to flavor your desserts with the "natural" flavors on sale in the supermarket, such as the fake almond flavor? As an alternative to the natural grated lemon peel or a few tablespoons of homemade liqueur, you can prepare orange blossom water!



Don't store avocado like this: it's dangerous



How many times have you been tempted to flavor your desserts with the "natural" flavors on sale at the supermarket, such as the fake almond flavor? As an alternative to the natural grated lemon peel or a few tablespoons of homemade liqueur, you can prepare orange blossom water!

It is perfect for flavoring tarts, creams, donuts and sorbets. So if you have an orange tree in your garden, you can't help but try your hand at preparing it. Here's how it's done.

Ingredients for a jar:

100 g of orange blossoms (they begin to bloom in late April and May)
water
2 tsp baking soda
50 g of cane sugar
Preparation:


1) Collect the orange flowers in a bowl full of cold water and baking soda, leave them to soak for 5 minutes, then drain and put them in a saucepan.
2) Add a cup of water, sugar, cover and bring to a boil; when the water starts to boil, turn off the stove and let it cool completely, without removing the lid.
3) When the liquid is cold, remove the flowers and transfer the liquid into a jar: you can keep it in the fridge and use it whenever you want. Of course, a few drops will not be enough to flavor your desserts (as happens with chemical aromas): half a jar will be enough for a dose of tart cream. Replace a glass of milk with a glass of orange blossom water and your cream will become very fragrant!
