My recipe:

20 lemons from my front yard
3-4 cups of sugar in 5 cups of water...depends on how sweet you like things
Two bottles of decent vodka

Get the vegetable peeler and take the skin off the lemons. Just the yellow part, not the white pith.
Put shaved skin in glass container, pour on a bottle of booze.
Cover container, wait 30 days.
Put sugar in water, boil 10 minutes.
Pour hot sugar water on lemon peels and add 2nd bottle of hootch.
Cover and wait 30 days.
Strain through coffee filter into clean bottles.

I don't appreciate the "creamsicle" style lemoncello, but if you do, don't use fat free milk product. Add it slowly so that the ethanol content keeps the milkfat disolved...too much milk, you get clumps, and that can taste ok, but looks/feels icky.

Lots of ways to use it, from icy cold shots, to a few drips added to a martini, to spooning in a little to Sunday morning waffles, to a teaspoon in a tall glass of soda water on a hot day.

PS
Squish the juice of the 20 lemons and there is your vitamin C for the next week.

There are a few blueberry farms up around Chico that get cold enough and on good acidic soil to make pretty good blueberries.

But yeah, I know what you are getting at with regards to blueberries...best ones I ever had were up in the NW. Same with a lot of other berries. Mmm, Olallieberries.
huckleberries....never even seen them outside of Idaho, but man are they good. Idaho locals guard huckleberry patch locations like surfers do with spots.


There are "secret" patches on the sides of most volcanoes in the Cascades. One of the better ones that I know of is right on the Pacific Crest Trail just north of the burn area near 10 U 658442.0 m E by 4354470 m N. No stepping in bear poop.

I've never had a huckleberry. Do they taste like blueberries? I'll put a wild blackberry above any other berry. A beach plum is pretty damn good too.

The huckleberries I am familiar with taste better than all but the best blueberries. Commercial blueberries can be over-watered and that dilutes the taste and makes the flesh too soft.

More detail on both here.


See that reddish ground cover, huckleberries galore. Just keep an eye out for the nearly hibernating bear looking to pack in a few more calories.

Nice, thanks Mr.Doof.

When you store it for 30 days, I presume you don't refrigerate it?

I'm weary about adding too much sugar because the sweet limes are not tart at all, sugar would make it even sweeter.

The recipes I found online are basically just putting lemon peels in the vodka drunk but I like your recipe better. cheers

Correct, not refrigerated.

I am unsure how the Persian Lime peel tastes. I can't think there is much sweetness in it. No putting any juice in the mix.....just make lemonade from the fruit squishings and let the shaved skin soak.

Half of the use of the sugar is to add viscosity and mouthfeel to the resulting beverage, the other is to cut the bitterness of the lemon oil in the peel, and the third 1/2 is for preservation laugh

My recipe isn't much different from "soak the skins you shaved off the lemon in vodka", but really, there is a time element to it (don't store in sunlight or a hot room either, make sure the container is airtight, etc) and a process element to it that makes for a better product. But if you use cheap likker, well, just don't. Am a fan of Skyy or Tito's. Don't go extra super premium, but no going cheap.

I like it best in a tall glass over ice with fizzy water and mint from the garden on those warm summer nights (that we rarely have).

Tito's for sure.

I read somewhere that they recommend blanching the citrus skins couple of times to get rid of the bitterness but I'm sure that would also kill the flavor.

I also found out that I mistakenly called it "Persian Lime" which apparently refers to Bearss lime. It's confusing.

Wish I had more lemons and bearss limes, those trees are not producing much this year.

I'll report how it goes. smile2 drunk

I made it a day and then drank a beer.

Just one.

Did that take me out of ketosis?

Grew up with preserved lemon peel as one of many choices at the crackseed store. This is how we would do it, others had different ways. Get sterilized glass jar and lid. Hot water would get the wax off if there was any, just rinse well if no wax. Pack in jar with layers of salt, layers of lemons. Roll/flip every couple days for week then let sit about 6 weeks. Use the rind for sucking on when throat is sore. Or chop up on chicken or fish. Made a chimichurri like thing as well. Save the leftover salt as well for use. shrug
