Limoncello-Final step


After about 2 months, it was time to strain and bottle the limoncello that I made from my very own lemon crop. After it was strained and bottled, it was a pale, pretty liquid. Here it is in my kitchen window amid the angels and artificial snow. After admiring the pretty presentation a while, I put the bottles in my freezer because you are supposed to serve it ice cold. I took one bottle with me on my Christmas rounds and it was a hit, especially with my husband's side of the family.

I've never heard of that..what is it and what do you do with it?

I'm SO into anything homemade and fresh these days. It is very pretty. I like your little display there.

Your lemoncello is pretty, and you'd be a hit here too if you stopped by with it. I made some cranberry liqueur that is pretty and very, very good. Unfortunately I did not start the process until it was too late to give as gifts and serve at Christmas events...next year!

How impressive, to harvest your own fruit and turn it into something so delicious and so welcome!
p.s. looks like the little angels are pretty happy about it too, were they imbibing?
