Topic: Way Off topic.... lemon chiller question ?? (9 msgs / 201 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
This past weekend we went on our annual mission trip to Mexico to build 
a home for some poor folks.
After work one day one of our fellow workers, who makes his own wine and 
beer, offered us a liquor that he said was made from lemon peel and it 
was very good.
It was thick and sweet. A very nice liquor. I googled it, but could not 
come up with what it was or how it was made. Any ideas from you good 
folks who are into this sort of thing?
I have an abundant supply of lemon peels, here in LHC, AZ.

Limoncello. Quite easy to make, I just made a batch a couple weeks ago. It
takes 14 days of waiting though!

It sounds a lot like lemoncello (in Italy) which I believe is made of 
lemon peels soaked in Vodka (or I suppose pure grain alcohol) and then 
strained and mixed with simple syrup.

I spelled it wrong, too.
Now I so want to try to make this. If anyone does tries it, be sure to let
us know how it tastes.
Leo - when you make it, do you try to avoid the more bitter white part under
the skin? I can't imagine being able to do that w/15 or so lemons (by the
end, I'd probably be tossing in the whole lemon...)

This is a multipart message in MIME format.
Good question..
You want the rind only, the yellow part.
Easiest way to get the rind is to use a microplane and zest the lemons.
Let me know if youd like my recipe..

Hi Lynne,
Thank you for your prompt response. :)
And thank you to everyone who replied.
The first one URL on the list you sent seems to have nailed it!
This is what I was served!
So, now to get a lemon zester and go attack my lemon tree :)
There must be 3 dozen left from this years crop, but they are all small 
ones this year.
I wonder how many pounds of zest you get from 15 regular size lemons?
Just over the border in Mexico you can get almost pure ethyl alcohol for 
a couple of bucks a quart!
Much cheaper than Vodka, and I guess that will work better for this 
process as well.
Will let yo know how it turns out.
Cheers,
PeterZ
