There is a new recipe on the blog and I can only be happy about it.
The recipe of limoncello, a typical liqueur made with lemons and alcohol, is by my grandmother, my guru in terms of cooking and a source of inspiration, who continues to give me her precious recipes with pride.
The secret for preparing a good limoncello are lemons, choose untreated and possibly organic.
I leave you with the recipe for the thermomix limoncello.
See you for the next recipe!
Valid for: Thermomix TM6 / TM5 / TM31
- 4 lemons
- 500 ml alcohol 95°
- 700 ml water
- 300 gr sugar
Wash the lemons and dry them well. Peel them with the help of a potato peeler, taking care of removing only the peel without removing the white part.
Put the skins obtained in a container together with the alcohol and leave to macerate for 48 hours in a cool and dark place.
After the time put the water and sugar in the jug, cook: 30 min. 100° speed. 2 and let it cool completely.
Then add the alcohol filtered from the lemon peels and mix: 1 min. speed. 4.
Bottle and store the freezer.
Remove the limoncello from the freezer a few minutes before serving... Enjoy your meal!
I did not throw away the peels left after filtering them out of alcohol, I made them dry well and mince in the jug for a few seconds at speed. Turbo, then placed in a container and stored in the freezer.
It is an excellent anti-waste solution for flavoring sweets and creams and having it ready for use.
