Limoncello: Boiling lemons

citruslove | Dec 17, 2012 06:28 PM

I just saw this recipe on splendidtable:

The recipe calls for boiling the zest, sugar, and lemon juice and adding it to the alcohol. Apparently it will be ready in about a week.

Has anyone ever used this method before? I know usually you just add the zest to alcohol and let it sit for a while. At least 40 days or so. Does the boiling zest just speed up the process? How would it effect the taste?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
