I love using honey in my sweet spreads. Honey adds a mellowness that can’t be found when using sugar alone. Be sure to use a mild flavored honey here as we still want the lemon flavor to shine through.
Limoncello is a traditional digestif of southern Italy, where the lemon trees give an abundance of bright, yellow fruit. This drink concentrates the flavor of those fresh golden fruits, making it the perfect palate cleanser after a rich meal.
As the last of the lemons hang like a hundred little lanterns, we pick them into woven baskets and blend them with lavender flowers to make Lemon-Lavender Marmalade. A colorful, elegant tasting marmalade, this end of summer recipe is sure to delight!
