I thought you might like to try my niece's very simple
recipe for limoncello. If you've never tasted it then you are in for a really nice surprise.
Home made Limoncello
1 litre of water
1 litre of good spirit (95° if possible
- suitable for food preparation)
Peel of 8 -10 large lemons (6-7 if bought in Italy)
Carefully wash the lemons and peel them, leaving as little of the white pith attached to the yellow skin (the ‘valuable’ part) as possible.
Place the yellow peel in the alcohol to marinate for approx. 10 days.
After which, boil the water and dissolve the sugar in it. Then add the spirit (the peel should be discarded).
Filter the liquid and bottle it. It must always be served well chilled, so put it into the freezer before serving it!
Just be careful WHO you give it to!
