Limoncello and torte – mine, all mine!

The lemons had been sweating over the vodka for some weeks, which is apparently the way to get a smoother tasting, less bitter brew, then for the final 15 minutes, rind is added for zing.

Limoncello, final ‘brewing’

I can vouch that the flavour was pretty good.  Strong, but good!

I felt obliged to also test the chocolate torte liberated from the freezer the day before.  I think it’s fair to say that the gluten free pastry was proportionally rather robust, but the ganache was great.
