Learn how to make potato vodka.

Instructions

    • 1

      To make potato vodka you need the following for 1 liter, double the recipe for 2 liters:
      -2.5lbs of potatoes by weight, peeled and diced finely
      -1 Pressure cooker
      -A distillery, if you do not have one, you can make one by using a large pan with a lid that has a heat safe hose.
      -A large collection container

      Put the finely diced potatoes in the pressure cooker with enough water to cover them with plenty of water to spare. If you have never used a pressure cooker before, please read all the directions thoroughly before attempting to use one. Burns hurt and pressure cookers can cause severe burning if not used properly.

      Cook the potatoes for between forty five minutes to an hour. You may have to cook them a bit longer or a bit shorter depending on how small or large you diced the potatoes. Once they have almost liquefied, you will know you have it correct.

      Let the potatoes and water cool to room temperature. Once it has cooled, strain the potatoes out of the water by using a fine mesh strainer. You will want to save the water as this is what you will make potato vodka from.

      Once the potato water is cooled, the distilling process that will make potato vodka will begin. You need to put the potato water in to the large pot. You should have a lid for the pot that fits tightly and you will need to have the hose connected tightly as well.

      Distilling is the means of turning steam back into liquid and this is where you get your potato vodka from. Once you have secured the lid and made sure the hose is tight as well, you will need to put your collection pan underneath the hose to collect the liquefied steam.

      Once all the potato water has steamed out, you will have single distilled vodka. Single distilled vodka is not very tasty, so you may want to go through the distilling process a few more times before it is tasty enough for drinking.

      Once you have made potato vodka, you may flavor it with berries or any type of fruit you choose. You simply need to add a handful of berries or chopped up fruit with 250g of sugar by weight to a liter of vodka.

      Shake the bottle every day for a week and your vodka will have a lovely fruity flavor to it. Keep in mind, the longer you let the fruit sit in the vodka, the more fruity it will taste.

      Now sit back and enjoy your first batch of potato vodka. It might take some time before you master the art of making potato vodka. Just remember that commercially made vodka has been being perfected for several centuries. So don't worry if your first few batches aren't perfect.
