Dr. C. planted this Meyer lemon tree over the wall in our back yard about 25 years ago when it was dying, and look at it now! Click here for the full story. We can hardly count the lemons on this tree this year, and I have given them away, sent them to friends, frozen juice, made lemon curd, and this week decided to make Limoncello.
The recipe that I am using is an adaptation of one from the magazine La Cucina Italiana. In place of grain alcohol I'm using Vodka, which is easier to buy at the local liquor store!
Using a funnel, transfer the finished limoncello to two 1-liter bottles, and seal. Refrigerate for 2 weeks before using.
