Apple Pie Sous Vide Bourbon Infusion Recipe
The only thing more American than warm apple pie is bourbon, so why not combine the two! This bourbon is flavored with fresh apples and classic apple pie spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. It's a perfect bourbon to sip with dessert or make into a liqueur. This recipe fits best in a quart jar because the apples take up so much space but you can half it if needed.
Apple Pie Bourbon Infusion Ingredients
2 gala or other sweet apples
3 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 cups bourbon
Apple Pie Bourbon Infusion Instructions
Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60.0°C).
Lightly scrub the outside of the apples then core and coarsely chop them. Combine the apple pieces with the remaining ingredients in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 3 hours.
Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and let rest on the counter for 10 to 15 minutes to cool slightly, then place in the ice bath for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the bourbon and store in a sealed container.
