Lemon country

Size of the lemons !

The Amalfi Coast is undoubtedly lemon country. We walked through lemon groves everyday, and limoncello bottles lined the shelves of every tourist shop. Admittedly, I’ve never got over the limoncello’s cough syrup taste, but I don’t dislike it so much as to refuse an aperitif.

Several times, at the street stalls, I came across what looked like giant, genetically modified lemons with a very gnarly rind. I never found out what they were called, although they’re obviously from the same family. The monster lemons are impressive when stacked up next to their conventional cousins.

  1. Love experiencing the Amalfi coast through your eyes and senses! I have to admit I’ve always wanted to try Limoncello, but I’m not sure it’s available in the States. Hmm, you’ve piqued my curiosity now 🙂

    1. If you do find limoncello, don’t get a super-sized bottle … unless you have a party of willing tryers. People tend to be quite particular about liking or disliking it !
