LIMONE DI PROCIDA

The island of Procida, in the gulf of Naples is
coloured by numerous and robust lemon trees,
that offer fruits of medium-big size with a coarse
grind yellow skin characterised by a rather thick
pith, the white and spongy layer underneath
the yellow skin. Their scent is intense and the
juice pleasantly sour; limone di Procida is used
to prepare drinks and as aroma in local recipes,
although finer palates like eating the pith in
slices, as dessert, with or without a spoon of
sugar.
