Ahem…yes I did. And in truth, I knew it wouldn’t work, I just didn’t know how bad it would be. That was the recipe I was given though, all the zest and all the juice of the lemons. The zest has a subtle flavor whereas the juice has a very powerful flavor, I’m not sure it could be used at all.Reply
Making Limoncello with Meyer lemons. Has anyone tried it?Reply
Has anyone tried to use the lemon peels for a second batch of limoncello? I just strained the lemon peels from the alcohol and they still have a lot of color in them. These lemons were from our own tree and are organic.Reply
Yes, I have made limoncello with meyer lemons. It turned out very good but not very lemony (is that a word?. i thought I would try to use lemon juice in the simple syrup by substituting half of the water for the juice. H
as anyone done that?
The 1st batch I used I used regular lemons.The flavor was very good with strong lemon flavor.
2nd batch I made I used batch I made I used Meyer lemons.
The Meyer lemons that were given to me tended to be larger so therefore it was much easier to peel
In my opinion The regular lemons were better for the limoncello than meyer lemons.
To me they( regular) had much more lemon flavor and aroma. Probably because the Myers are a hybrid -I believe they have some orange in it.To me, this made it not quite as pungent as a regular lemon.it really needed to be a little more Lemon Flavored.
I took a small amount of the Meyer
limoncello And added a little juice from a regular tart yellow lemon. it gave me a point of reference . I don’t I think I’m going to add straight lemon juice to the limoncello I made with myer lemons but Next time I think I’m just gonna go with regular lemons.
Hmmm. I haven’t tried that but since I have some Meyer limoncello sitting up right now maybe I can add thatReply
Did you try adding sugar?Reply
We just picked a batch of Meyer lemons from our backyard tree and are looking for a recipe for the juice. The juice by itself without sugar is drinkable but not totally pleasant. Hopefully, with further investigation, we will get lucky and find the perfect recipe. Next stop, Martha Stewart!Reply
Did you put the juice from all the lemons you zested into the infusion? I would think that for a normal batch, putting the juice of more than 1/2 of a single lemon would be disasterous.Reply
