  • 700 ml vodka
  • 2 tbsp dried fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • peel of half an orange

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Resting time 4 days

Slice the peel off half of the orange, and cut the pieces into thin strips.

Add the orange peel and fennel seeds to the vodka in a bottle, and leave it to infuse for 4 days.

When ready to serve, stir the honey through the infused vodka to round out the flavour.

Serve the snaps in a sherry or shot glass.
