Hopefully you checked out my recipe for Lemony Lemon Sorbet. If you did, you read that I had fresh lemons that I had to use that my husband bought from COSTCO. Well, here’s another idea for using the lemon peels. This is not my recipe, but I found it on Food Network’s website and it’s Giada DeLaurentiis’ recipe. Be aware that it’s a 5 day process, but well worth the wait!
Besides just sipping this delicious drink after dinner, there are some other delicious uses for it. I drizzled it over a scoop of homemade lemon sorbet and garnished with a mint spring for a quick, refreshing dessert. It’s also delicious served mixed with some sparkling wine for a brunch cocktail. For a fresh summer dessert, you can also serve it drizzled over some fresh berries with a spoonful of fresh whipped cream.
I hope you give this a try. It requires only four ingredients (and one of them is tap water) and you can use the juice of all those lemons to make two batches of my LEMONY LEMON SORBET! You can find this recipe at www.foodnetwork.com and search Limoncello.
