I loved reading the Everyday Cheapskate column on Mary’s lemon bounty. I wanted to suggest for anyone who has an excess of lemons—make Limoncello. This is an Italian lemon liqueur that also uses the lemon’s peels, and it is delicious.
I made it last year for Christmas gifts and had the most fun shopping swap meets and yard sales to find really beautiful and unusual bottles. I even researched recipes using limoncello and attached a copy of the recipe I used to each gift. It takes awhile to “brew,” but it’s easy and the end result is beautiful. With all the juicing, peeling, and cooking, there’s not a smidgen of waste. Carol
This is brilliant. I can’t wait to try it. What a great way to put the zest to use.
