November in Sorrento...
November is Sorrento is the season in which we collect the green lemons for the Limoncello liquor.
2 weeks ago my mother and I collected the lemons from the Sant’Anna garden and we prepared the limoncello liquor for the entire family.
We follow our family recipe that my mother received from her mother (she would be 104 years old).
On Sunday we prepared a Limoncello Tiramisù Cake in order to taste the Limoncello we produced.
It was delicious…and I am happy to share our family recipe with all my Sant’Anna Friends!
