Word of the Week: Limone

By June 17, 2016 , , , ,

If you find yourself on the Italian coast, you'll probably find fantastic limoni!

Limone, as you've probably guessed, is the Italian word for lemon and our word of the week! The plural form is limoni. 

These lemons, also called citrons, are truly fantastic and not your typical small, round and even lemons we can find here in our local groceries. These limoni are bigger than oranges and they grow in abundance in stunning terraced groves, adding bright pops of yellow to a bright and colourful Italian environment. They feature in Italian cuisine in delicious and sometimes surprising ways!

These lemons are famous for their delicate flavour, sweetness and low acidity. These lemons are more than just a garnish. Here are some delicious ways Italians enjoy limoni!

  • Limoncello
  • La Granita di Amalfi 
  • Candied Citrons
  • Insalata di Cedro (Citron Rind Salad)
