Limoncello

A recent glut of lemons, found me looking for something new to make.  It didn't take me long to discover a recipe for Limoncello.  I started off with a cheap bottle of Vodka, some lemons and a preserving jar.


I very carefully peeled only the yellow from the skin of the lemons.


Popped it into the jar


And glugged the bottle of Vodka over the top


It went into a cool dark place for two weeks


And came out a lovely yellow colour.  I then removed the lemon peel, added a vanilla pod and about 250 mils of sugar syrup


This was placed back in the cupboard for a further 2 weeks, strained, bottled, refrigerated and enjoyed!

Of course, with the freshly peeled lemons, I just had to knock up a quick Lemon Meringue Pie


Would've been rude not to really wouldn't it?
