Home Made Limoncello
8 Unwaxed lemons
1 litre vodka
250g/9oz white sugar
Begin by carefully taking the peel off the lemons very thinly do not use any of the white pith as ths is bitter and ruins the flavour.Alternatively use a grater to take off the lemon skin.
Combine with the vodka in a kilner type jar with a lid and leave to stand and infuse for about a month the posh name is to macerate.
Once the flavour has imparted into the vodka add the sugar, stirring or shaking daily until it has completely dissolved.
Strain I use coffee paper filters to take away any sediment, and or peel if in strips, decant into screw top bottles and store in the freezer. Always serve this well chilled.
