The RSF Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…

 Lavender Agave Limoncello

Lavender Agave Limoncello is a great substitute for traditional Limoncello which calls for white refined sugar.  A recipe for traditional Limoncello is also included below for those who want to try it the original way.  The agave recipe was inspired by Kristin who also spent time in the Amalfi Coast learning from the best!
What You Will Need:

– 2 cups vodka
– 5 Meyer lemons, peeled (Atkins Farms)
– 2 limes, peeled (Atkins Farms)
– 1/2 tsp. lavender (Keys Creek Lavender)
– 2/3 cup agave (Thyme of Essence)
– 1 cup water
– Juice from 2 Meyer lemons (Atkins Farms)

RSFFMlimoncellosunflower11. Using a vegetable peeler or sharp knife, peel the lemons and limes carefully. Trim away any white pith from the peels, as the pith can make the Limoncello taste bitter.

2. Place the peels in a large pitcher and pour 2 cups of vodka over the peels. Add in the lavender. Cover the mouth of the pitcher with plastic wrap and set the pitcher in a cool, dark place. Allow the peels to steep for at least a week. (This is the part where your patience needs to kick in.)

3. After a week has passed, combine the agave+water+juice from two lemons in a saucepan and bring to a boil. I like to boil the sliced lemons in with the sweetened mixture (it gives it a yummy sweet-and-sour flavor!) After the mixture has boiled for a good 5 minutes, remove from heat. Let the mixture cool completely. (Again, utilize your patience and just walk away. You can do it.)

4. Once it’s completely cooled, the agave+water+lemon mixture should be the consistency of syrup. Strain the syrupy through a fine mesh strainer. This should weed out all the lemons and seeds. Double strain if necessary. Set the syrup aside.

5. Next, strain the lemon peel-vodka mixture.

6. Combine both mixtures and seal in a glass jar. I got mine at Crate & Barrel, but I also used a mason jar as a second container. Store in the freezer for up to a month.

Now Enjoy! You can serve the limoncello in shot glasses at the end of the meal, or you can use it as a cocktail mixer. It’s a snazzy beverage, perfect for the coming months’ holiday celebrations.  Thank you to Kristin for her inspiration and fond memories of our summers in Ravello!

To Make Traditional Limoncello:
Follow the above method with these ingredients: 
– 2 cups vodka
– 5 lemons, peeled
– 2 limes, peeled
– 1 cup sugar (I used raw)
– 1 cup water
– Juice from 2 lemons
