When life gives you lemons~
I have been in the house for 3 days after my most recent PDT treatment for skin cancers. There is nothing that makes you want to get out of the house more than knowing you can't.
I have caught up with season 7 of Project Runway (I'm still devestated over Anthony~ Bless His Heart!) I've read a book, cooked to my little heart's content and worked on some overdue projects.
My limoncello has been infusing for 45 days. It was time to start Step Two of my hooch-making process. Check HERE for the entire Limoncello recipe from my friend Deborah~ the hooch maker herself (also now of Pomodori e Vino fame!).
So... here we go. The lemon peels have lost their color and are crisp as chips. I filtered out the peels.
I made a syrup of sugar and water and added it to my lemon infusion.
The next step is to return my jar to it's cool dry place for 40 days for the mellowing process that will combine the alcohol infusion with syrup to create a beautiful Limoncello. By then I'll be sipping limoncello in Tuscany.
This batch will be really ready when I get home.
