Meyer lemons are next to impossible to find in my part of Pennsylvania so when I saw 2 bags left on the shelf at the grocery store, I had to do a double take. Yes! There were meyer lemons in my store. I snatched them up and didn’t look back. I knew exactly what I was going to make with them. Homemade limoncello. It was time for the sous vide to continue to earn its keep.
Homemade Limoncello Ingredients:
- 5 Meyer Lemons, Zest
- 2 Cups Vodka
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 2 Cups Water
Meyer Lemon Zest
Wash the wax off of the meyer lemons. I sooooo wish I had citrus trees at my house. But Pennsylvania is just not conducive for citrus.
Carefully peel just the zest off of the lemons. I used a vegetable peeler. Do your best not to get the bitter white pith. you want JUST the orangy lemon outside. This is where all the flavorful lemon oils reside.
Easy Limoncello Recipe
Place the zest of 5 meyer lemons in a quart mason jar.
Fill the jar with vodka or other grain alcohol.
Fit with a lid, ring and finger tighten.
Sous Vide Limoncello
Set your sous vide to 135ºF (57ºC).
Once your water come to temperature, place your jar in the water and cook for 2 hours.
I love this process because the limoncello is ready to go in just a few hours verses the several weeks that a traditional limoncello recipe would take.
