Italians Do It Better
I have to admit that I pride myself on that percentage of my DNA that makes up my Sicilian blood. I always say it's the reason why I can't survive another New York winter! I'm supposed to live in the land of olive orchards, wine grapes and LEMONS! My brother & sister-in-law have the most beautiful Meyer lemon tree in California & always include lemons in the Christmas box they send to me in Brooklyn. I can never bring myself to use the lemons for cooking, but rather keep them on the table to smell so I can dream of warmer places! This year I got to be home for Christmas and we made Limoncello for our family and friends!
Peel and Juice Lemons
*We used juice to make Lemon Curd as there is no juice used in the making of Limoncello
Place Lemon Peels in Large Glass Jar w/ Vodka
After a Week Strain and Add Simple Syrup
Bottle Up For Your Friends and Serve Chilled
The Meyer Lemon Tree + '64 Chevy
*maybe we should start selling the Limoncello out of the back of the truck, sort of like a grown-up Lemonade Stand!
