My friend Marie wrote this fabulous simple cooking cookbook, A Cabin Full of Food. I decided to check it out as my monthly free book through Amazon Prime. I got a few chapters into it and decided to purchase it because cookbooks are hard to consult via electronics. If she had only had one or two
recipes that I liked, I would have just copied them onto a recipe card, but this book was packed full of recipes and useful tips about using food from our garden. Not only that, but she had a lot of recipes that looked like they would make awesome gifts. And I’m always looking for fun gift ideas to put up on the blog.
The recipe that stuck out to me the most was her lemon extract recipe. I LOVE making extracts. I wrote about her Vanilla Extract recipe as a guest on her blog.

You can remove the guts of the lemon and put them aside for cooking. It’s nice not to waste them.
You need to take the lemon peels and peel off the white stuff inside it. The white stuff peels off easier if you use a cheese grater.
Squeeze your peels into the bottle. Pour some vodka inside using your funnel. Then close your bottle and shake. I kept it in my cabinets and tried to shake it every now and then over the following weeks.
Oh- and add your label!
