Do you think the only thing your Sous Vide machine can do is cook food? If so you need to watch me show you how it can be used to infuse flavors into your favorite Bourbon Whiskey.
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
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 water and cook at 140°F (60°C) 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 place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the bourbon and store in a sealed container.
