I have been making bottles of Limoncello as Christmas gifts!

Prep Time: 5 mins.,
Cooking Time: 10 mins.,
Serves: 2.

Equipment:

  • vegetable peeler;
  • small sharp knife;
  • bowl or jug;
  • bottles;
  • Cling film

Shopping List:

  • ten unwaxed lemons;
  • 75ml bottle of vodka;
  • 3 1/2 cups Water;
  • 2 1/2 cups Sugar.

 

To Make the Limoncello:
The peel is all we need for this recipe, so using the vegetable peeler, get long strips of peel from the lemons. Trim & discard the white pith from the peel using the knife.

Put the de-pithed peel strips into the jug and pour in the vodka before covering with cling film.  Leave alone for four days at room temperature.

Four Days later

Remove cling film and stir, pour into a large saucepan and heat on stove (medium heat) until sugar dissolves (about 5 mins) then let it all cool down to room temperature again.
