Limoncello made from a family recipe

My friend Margie and I were very busy bees with all the citrus from the Crest Hill Grove.  Not only did we develop the soon to be released Crest Hill Marmalade but we also spent an afternoon making homemade Limoncello from an old family recipe.

Here are the photos of the first stages.  The entire recipe takes almost three months from start the finish.  The stage photographed here takes 40 days and must sit in a dark place for that long.  When that stage is done we will post the next stage.

Meyer lemons from the Grove:

 Five quarts of Everclear

The rinds of 35 organic meyer lemons.

Now into a dark place for the magic to begin.
