Hi everyone! How’s your weekend going so far? I hope it’s going great. I couldn’t wait to publish this edition of Sunday Snapshots, so it’s coming to you a day earlier. Enjoy!:)
Today I want to share some photos of this lovely Sorrento lemon that I found at my neighborhood Italian deli. They had a big pile of these gorgeous and huge lemons that I just had to take home with me and photograph. I’ve never seen lemons this big, but apparently that is one of the characteristics of Sorrento lemons. They have a strong fragrant scent, their peel is very thick and their taste is tart. Sorrento lemons are most commonly used for making the Italian liqueur Limoncello. They are also used for making simple syrups, lemonades or an array of desserts. Unfortunately I don’t think that they are commonly found outside of Europe. But if you’re lucky and do find them, make sure to buy at least a few.
I hope you’re Halloween plans are going excellent, have a great week!
