I am looking for a recipe for crema di meloncello from Italy. I have not found it on any website and wonder if someone has it but has not thought to put it online. Would love to try it!!

Never heard of it, but I went to an Italian sight for the recipe and found it. The easy part is translating the recipe(i'm italian), the hard part was translating the measurements(kilos,grams and litres),but here it goes. 12 ounces. pureed ripe canteloupe; 13 ounces. 90 proof alchohol(pure); 13 ounces. sugar; 1 pint heavy cream; 4 ounces. dry vodka; a pinch of vanilla and juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon............In a large jug, combine melon puree, 2 ounces of sugar(taken from the 13 ounces),vanilla and lemon and place in fridge for a few hours. Add alchohol and set aside for 1 week. After 1 week filter mixture. Prepare a sugar syrup by adding remainder of sugar to 1/2 cup of water and letting boil for a few minutes

Sorry, hit the post button by accident. Here's the rest.......After boiling the syrup, add cream and *almost* bring back to a boil. Cool completely, then add melon mixture and vodka, put into a sealed container and let sit in a dark area for another week, stirring twice a day. Filter again and store in the fridge. It is ready to drink at this point. Shake before using. Sounds like quite a process but also sounds worth it.

Thanks AngieItaliano! I live in Cyprus so the metric system is no problem for me. But the recipe being in Itallian would have to be why I couldn't find it. Thanks so much for the translation, I will try to make it (you should too, it is sooooo good). Pregnant now, but will let you know after the baby pops how it tastes!

PS Have you heard of limoncello (I think every Itallian must know about it)? Meloncello is known on the Sorrento, Capri, and Ischia islands off of Naples. I just came from Ischia a few months ago and am regretting only bringing one bottle home with me!
