How to make potato vodka

Potatoes can be used for a variety of things but did you know that you can make vodka from potatoes? Vodka is a popular alcoholic beverage. It is colorless liquid that consists mostly of distilled water and ethanol. Both water and ethanol are purified through several processes of distillation, which may come from fermented substances of rye or wheat, sugar-beet molasses, and potatoes.

Items you will need
♦Pressure cooker
♦Distilling kit

*2.2 lbs. of potatoes produces one liter of vodka

Peel the potatoes and chop them into small cubes then place the potato cubes into a pressure cooker. Add enough water to completely cover the potatoes Then cook potatoes in the pressure cooker until the potatoes are dissolved in the water
Allow the potatoes to cool then strain the dissolved potatoes to extract the potato juice.

Purchase a distilling kit online or at beer and wine making stores in your area. A distillery removes impurities from your extracted potato juice and gives you a pure potato vodka. You can add food coloring if you want to make it more colorful or flavors to spice it up.
