Licore de nespera
Liquor made from Loquat (Nespera) Seed Pits
This liqueur tastes just like Amaretto. The recipe originaly came from Italy. It is not as strong as the French L'eau Du Vie which smells like fruit but has no taste except pure alcohol.
1 cup loquat(nespera) seed pits
Pinch crushed vanilla bean
6 rose petals
4 lemon balm leaves
350ml pure alcohol ( aguardente bagaciera )
350ml bottled water
250g caster sugar
After the seeds are dry you place them in an air tight clear glass jar with the lemon balm leaves, the vanilla, the rose petals and the alcohol. Boil the water and dissolve the sugar in it and add this into the jar with the other ingredients.
Now close the jar tight and let it sit in the sun for a month, shaking the jar up several times throughout the month.
After the month is up strain all of the ingredients in the jar through a filter paper into a dark glass bottle. Cork it and allow it to sit undisturbed for three more months. Then you can serve it.
