For this first post I offer a gift. It is a recipe that was shared with me by my friend's mother-in-law for Limoncello. There are many recipes for this drink on the Web but this is how she has made it for over 50 years.
1lt 90% alcohol
1 and 1/4 lt water
Wash and peel underripe lemons. Use of a potato peeler is a great idea as you don't want any of the pith( white of the lemon). Add lemon peel and alcohol to a glass jar. Simmer water with sugar to dissolve. Add sugar water to the jar and store for eight days in a dark place. Drain and bottle.
Many recipes suggest adding the sugar water after the eight days but I am sticking with her recipe on this.
I made it yesterday and will let you know next week how it tastes.
So welcome to my blog...come back often.
