When life hands you lemons what do you do?






Batch #2

Aunt Gloria's authentic Sicilian limoncello recipe (some of us sampled the very last of it at an Italian nite meetup long ago):  70 lemons, 7 bottles of Everclear, 16 cups of sugar, and 2 gallons of water!  Whoosh!  Stay away from an open flame!

It'll be ready for tasting in a minimum of 3 weeks.

Tonight we peel.  Everyone please bring $15, 7 large, FRESH lemons and a good peeler.

Potluck/BYOB...bring whatever the heck you want (look at the pics from batch #1 on May 22nd)

Remember the Little Red Hen??  Who will help me make the limoncello? 

"Not I," barked the lazy dog.
"Not I," purred the sleepy cat.
"Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck.

Who will help me drink the limoncello?

"I will," barked the lazy dog.
"I will," purred the sleepy cat.
"I will," quacked the noisy yellow duck.

"No; I will!" said the Little Red Hen.

Soon after, she passed out, went to St Charles and had her stomach pumped. I understand her new drink of choice is "Tonic and lime"...

    Gave it a stir or two this morning ~ think I burned a few nose hairs in the process. The mixture is turning yellower as we speak!

    Wonderful company, thanks Tom for opening up your home to us. I look forward to my fair share of Lemmoncello, whatever that turns out to be. :)

    Thanx to Jeff and Diane for tidying up the kitchen afterwards, and to all for bringing oh-so-delicious food. ...and for adhering to the lemon count! Great bunch of peelers!

    Remember: 7 large, fresh lemons. Fresh lemons are easier to peel, plus they contain more lemon oil. If you are better with a paring knife, you may bring that instead of a peeler. After we mingle & nosh, I'll hand out bowls to everyone to place their peels into. Bring more than 7 lemons as well as a zester and you will be awarded the task of cleaning up at the end of the evening :-(
