…40 days later…

Hey, it is time to take your jar with the first stage of limoncello out of the dark cool place you have been hiding it. You don’t know what in the world I’m talking about?  Then you must have missed the March 8th post that gave you the first step to make your own limconcello. Of course, you can still do it, just go back to the beginning, do step one and mark your calendar accordingly. But if you were following along, you are ready to proceed.

Limoncello (step two of three)

1  1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2  1/2 cups water
Remaining 1/2 bottle 100 proof vodka (1  1/2 cups)

After 40 days, bring sugar and water to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Let the sugar syrup cool completely, then add it to the jar along with the remaining 1/2 bottle vodka. Mix well, cover and place back in the dark cool place for another 40 days.

Yup, that’s right, another 40 days… but then, as promised, there will be great joy and jubilation and grand payoffs! Ice cold glasses of limoncello to sip and a gorgeous pie to bake and indulge in! Check back on Wednesday, May 26th for the grand reveal!

Help, where can I find a bigger jar? I am ready for step 2 (yes, I know… it’s been way more than 40 days but that can’t hurt, right? Do you know where they sell x-large mason jars?

OK — I didn’t do the work 40 days ago . . . so I don’t get to reap the rewards . . . but am available for taste testing!
