limoncello-part 2

If you remember, I started the lengthy process of preparing homemade limoncello over a month ago.  Initially, I was very diligent about giving the bottle a good shake once or twice a day, but as the weeks passed I forgot about it until the day my husband said “what’s this bottle of lemons sitting on the floor by the hutch?”

Hopefully, liquer gets better with age like wine.  Time will tell.

On to part 2…

Make simple syrup:  dissolve 3 cups of sugar in 3 cups of water in a stockpot on the stove top.  Only heat until fully dissolved, then remove from heat.  Strain the solids as you pour the liquid from the bottle into the stock pot with the sugar mixture.  Pour mixture back into bottle and cap tightly.  Repeat process for next 2-3 weeks of giving the bottle a shake once or twice a day.

SEE YOU IN A FEW WEEKS.
