Lemons are to Sicily as grapes are to Tuscany, so a recipe with this secret island ingredient is called for at every wedding in Italy down south.
1 and 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 cup pecorino cheese, grated
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T minced parsley
salt & pepper to taste
24 lemon tree leafs
mix ingredients in a bowl, form small meatballs and wrap in a lemon tree leaf. Secure with a toothpick. Grill on the side (not directly over coals) until done.
Recommended wine: Sicilian Sambuca Red
