Big bags full of lemons!!
(Father in law pruned a customers tree!)
And make Limoncello.
One litre of vodka requires the rind of 12 -18 lemons depending on their size.
Let it steep in a cool dark place for a while, up to a year if you are patient enough, then strain and add a simple syrup and you are done.
Chill and serve.
Of course a consequence of needing all that rind, is a whole bunch of naked lemons!!
So I made lemon Curd too.
Just one batch today, I still have some naked lemons and loads more with skins so will make more of both recipes soon.
The lemon curd is not a preserve, so will not keep in the pantry but it will keep in the freezer for a few months, and home made is much better than the stuff from the store with all the preservatives added.
Last weekend in Wellington was fun, we did take a few photos, but it wasn't really that kind of trip.
I found some cross stitch supplies, but sadly only half of my list.
I have thread to quilt the Carpenters Wheel, and I had planned to make a start on that today, but someone gifted me a big bag of lemons. LOL
Jiffys blanket is keeping me warm on these cool evenings as I work away at it.
I might need to peep into the bottom of the basket and see if it is nearly time for more yarn.
Lunch with Claire again today.
