With the warming weather, our lemons are practically falling of the trees. Here’s a lovely way to use them, homemade Crema di Limoncello…

Limoncello is a traditional digestif (a drink served after the meal to theoretically aid in digestion), served throughout Southern Italy, particularly in Naples.
It’s produced by infusing a strong alcohol with the zest of plenty of lemons and then adding sugar, resulting in a sweet, floral, and citrusy spirit.
It’s a bright and memorable end to a genial meal with friends and family…While there are many producers who have been making it for years, many families make their own. And why not? It’s so easy to do!
This is a simple drink to keep on hand for yourself, for guests, or give out as gifts.
