Make Limoncello!

1 750ml bottle of vodka
10 lemons
simple syrup

Peel the 10 lemons with a peeler and put the peel in a quart mason jar. Add as much of the vodka as you can into the jar. I usually have about 3-4 shots left in the bottle; drink it. Put the jar in your pantry or wherever for 10-12 days. Strain out the lemon peels and mix in simple syrup (simple syrup is made with 3.5 cups of water and 2.5 cups of sugar, heated until sugar is dissolved and cooled). Refrigerate overnight and enjoy.

Use the limoncello to make Limoncello & Asparagus Risotto

This is all really good stuff. I'm putting together a small cookbook on the side in my spare time and using all this stuff is way easier than researching my recipes.

So, thanks.


I'm doing the same thing with recipes I've gotten from these threads.

Argh.  Don't remind me.  It's been years since I've been able to enjoy grapefruit.  (And for most BP/heart med interactions, it's only grapefruit that's a danger.  Most other domestic citrus is fine.)

You probably have a yeast infection of some kind.


Some kind? No, only the BEST kind - it's a rare yeast found only in the rafters of Belgian cottages, and specific to only one region there.. very rare, highly sought after by those in the know.

also... that's the joke dot jpg

The reason I said " Have a chat with your Doc" was, That "it's only grapefruit that's a danger. " is baised on 20+ years ago research by Professor Bailey, of the University of Western Ontario.

The same researcher updated his findings in 2008.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1046915/Drinking-fruit-jui ce -stop-medication-working.html

Professor Bailey, of the University of Western Ontario, in Canada, said: 'The concern is loss of benefit of medications essential for the treatment of serious medications.'
Drugs shown to be weakened by grapefruit, orange and apple juices include the blood pressure-lowering beta blockers atenolol, celiprolol, and talinolol and the hay-fever treatment fexofenadine.

Hm.  The studies I looked at indicated grapefruit was pretty much alone in containing high enough levels of furanocoumarins to cause a dangerous interaction.  And those caused an increase in the concentration of the medicines, enough to threaten overdose conditions:

http://www.webmd.com/hypertension-high-blood-pressure/guide/grapefru it -juice-and-medication

Although a couple minutes of google-fu did turn up an article that suggested any sour citrus was a possible danger, but exonerated sweet citrus like orange.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/11/26/grapefruit-medicine-in te raction-warning-expanded/

Two of the medications I take are on the "OMG DANGER" list with regard to grapefruit, which is why I've missed it for years.  I consume far more than the average per capita of other citrus, mostly as ingredients in cooking or drinks, and have had no difficulties, but that's only one anecdote and not data. The only really empirical conclusion you can draw from it is that you'll pry the margarita out of my cold dead hands.

/one way or the other...

This thread led to a lovely dinner.

Cous Cous with chard, garbanzo beans, artichokes, preserved lemons and chicken with dill.

damn I'm good.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned, but 2 T soy sauce + 1 1/2 T lime juice makes a FANTASTIC marinade for steaks or pork chops.

Seriously, just try it. Unbelievably delish.

People ask every time what the marinade is, and it's idiot proof.
