It's a summer garden in a bottle, similar to Galliano, with Yarrow, chamomile, lavender, juniper berries, cinnamon and spices, anise and citrus. Then it's finished off with vanilla bean! It tastes devine!
I had the pleasure of visiting the Mantova region of northern Italy during one of my business trips. This was the first time I had tried Limoncello and I was hooked. After many attempts to recreate the taste, I've finally settled on this one.
We are deep in indian summer here in Minnesota. Peppers seem to be the last thing to arrive, unaware that it's almost October. With 80 degree days, they just keep coming. To preserve the late bounty of my garden, I made Italian-style giardiniera.
