When life gives you lemons….. make Limoncello, life was giving me lemons by the bucketful one winter so I made this liqueur and gave it as gifts for Christmas. It smells divine, and tastes wonderful.
Put the sugar in a pan with 200 ml of boiling water and simmer till dissolved.
Add the peel, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes, then add the lemon juice, bring back to the boil and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes so you don’t damage the glass jar when you decant it
Finally pour into a large jar, add the Vodka, and secure the lid.
Gently shake the jar every two days for two weeks.
Strain the liqueur into bottles, (a double layer of muslin in a funnel works best if you have one), add a little peel for decorative effect and label. Serve chilled as an after dinner treat.
