Wave and Limoncello (thank you Paolo)

by Felecia February. 20, 2012 2935 views

We spent quite a while out at the lighthouse again today because I love to sit on soaking wet logs, getting my ass wet and watching the waves. Okay, the watching the waves part is true.

When we came home I wanted to make Limoncello. I decided to ask Paolo (Borogovoi [photoblog.com]) for some tips, so he sent me this recipe.

Per confezionare 1 litro e mezzo di Limoncello, procuratevi questi ingredienti:
- 10 limoni di media grandezza non trattati,
- 1 litro di alcol a 90°,
- 400 gr di zucchero
- mezzo litro di acqua

Poi procedete in questo modo: per prima cosa lavate accuratamente i limoni e tagliatene la scorza sottilissima, stando attenti a non tagliare la parte bianca. Mettete le scorze su un tagliere e riducetele a piccole listarelle.

Raccogliete le listarelle di limone in un barattolo di vetro a chiusura ermetica, versateci sopra tutto il litro di alcol, chiudete e lasciate in infusione per 15 giorni.

Trascorsi i 15 giorni, preparate lo sciroppo di acqua e zucchero. In un pentolino versate zucchero e acqua contemporaneamente, quindi scaldate a fuoco dolce fino a che lo zucchero non si sarà tutto disciolto. Spegnete e fate raffreddare a temperatura ambiente.

Unite lo sciroppo all'alcol in infusione mescolando bene. Prendete un secondo recipiente e trasferitevi tutto il liquore filtrandolo con un imbuto rivestito da una garza o da carta filtro. Ripetete l'operazione al contrario una seconda volta, strizzando bene le scorzette di limone.

Infine, sempre servendovi dell'imbuto filtrante, riempite le bottiglie, chiudetele e riponetele a riposare in una dispensa asciutta.

It won't be ready for 2 weeks. I can hardly wait.

Powerful wave shots. I think you need to take a glass or two of the limoncello every day during those two weeks, just to make sure it doesn't go bad and to know when it's ready.

Limoncello is very nice after a big seafood meal it helps the digestion.
The alchol he was talking about wasn't vodka though so yours might be slightly different .
great set

Your waves put mine to shame - they are amazing! Well done. But I am not sure if I should keep trying, or simply throw myself in!!Maybe I'll make the receipe and drink it all and then decide…..

Really nice first wave, and great prep shot, but I don't know if I could wait two weeks! LOL! Hope you find something else in the meantime!

That first shot is way cool. How did you manage it? Surely there's not a bridge...Were you in the water? It looks like it's taken from the side of the wave. What I really want to know is how you read that recipe? Do you speak Italian? I can't make sense of anything but the pictures and it looks like it will be good. Fortified lemonade!!!!
