The lights, the thrill of the Holidays, the sparkle, the festivities...
They are all behind us now. Time to set your sights on the year ahead. Why not do a little investing in your future while passing through the short winter days.
Limoncello, that sunshine in a bottle. The ray of light in the darkness. Now is the perfect time to be making it. No need to limit yourself to lemons either. There's a plethora of citrus around. Tangerines, Meyer lemons, satsumas, bergamot, Buddha's Hand, yuzu. Why not capture their fragrant essences in a bottle to be uncorked and consumed in the warmth of the summer sun.
I am in the process of making Meyer Limoncello. The peels of about 10 lemons PITH REMOVED as much as possible and soaking in a bath of high proof alcohol ( 750 ml of Everclear). I have it stired in a dark and cool spot but given a shake and turn a couple of times a week. I will keep you updated on the progress and the ne t step involved, but that won't be for weeks. Till then, get busy on your own!
