I have started a bottle of Limoncello recently and I am looking for ways to use it.....other than just drinking! This is a recipe I just found in Cooking Light and can't wait to make it with my homemade Limoncello.
- 1 cup fresh raspberry
- 2 cups fresh blackberries
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 -3 tablespoons limoncello
- 1⁄2 cup mint leaf, torn
- Combine the raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, starwberries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and limoncello in a large bowl.
- Let stand for at least 20 minute.
- Gently stir in the mint using a rubber spatula.
There are not enough stars available to compliment this dessert!!! I had saved this clipping...hoping to use it one day. Well I bought the Limoncello and stored it in my freezer. My husband phones (at 5:00!!) and says that he is bringing someone home for dinner. It was a "mish mash" type of dinner, but I did have the ingredients for this dessert. Awsome...delicious....excellent (and any other words to describe!!!). I used Splenda for the sugar....was under on the lemon zest and did not use quite the full amount of mint leaves (which is a total must!!!) Although I live in a valley that is known for growing all these berries, there is a very short window for getting all these berries ripen at the same time. I would choose 1 - 3 berries for the dessert. Our friend raved about this dessert and was asking where I found the recipe. Although I have not tried it, there is no reason why the sauce could not be used on other fruits like melons, grapes, kiwis, papaya, mangos or served over ice cream. This recipe is a gold mine....if you like the ingredients, you will love the combination!! I am just sorry SkinnyMinnie, you beat me to the punch on posting it!!!!
Um Wow! This is incredible! I want to try it served over mini angel food cakes and maybe a small dallop of fresh whipped cream
My crafting/potluck/wine drinking group made liqueurs for our monthly project, limoncello being one of them. I have a bottle I made some years back that is very well aged, so I made this recipe to take. Everybody loved it. I used stawberries, fresh blueberries, and fresh cherries that I pitted and cut in half. I mixed the "dressing" ingredients separately and added them to the fruit. Delicious!!
