Lemoncello in Thermomix

After a recent trip to Rome, I wanted to bring home a bottle of Lemoncello. We were flying with a connection in Montreal and we were told that your baggage was now cleared at your final destination.  This meant that if we purchased a bottle of alcohol duty free it would be taken away from us at our connecting airport. Not so. Now when you buy duty free and leave it in the sealed bag you can take it on your connecting flight. Anyway I saw a Thermomix recipe and decided to make it myself.  It is fantastic! Well worth the effort. Enjoy! I also reduced the sugar so it is not as sweet as the store bought stuff.


Ingredients:
1000g alcohol (I used a potato vodka so that it's gluten free)
11 organic lemons
1000g water
800g sugar

Peel lemons with a potato peeler and place peeled skin in jar with vodka. Let rest for 6 days in a dark spot. Shake jar daily.
Add 1000g water, 800g sugar and put in Thermomix  Cook 8 minutes /80C/speed 2
Add sugar syrup to jar and let stand at least 2-20 more days.
Strain and fill into bottles.
Enjoy!!!!!

  2. Hi Lillian
    Sorry It was the lemon peels only. They contain all the essential oils with the flavour.

  3. Sounds yum, will definitely give this a try. I loved Limoncello in Italy and would also prefer less sugar. Thank you for sharing.
