Hamad M'rakad ( Preserved Lemons )

5 mins (prep 5)
3 ingredients
4 servings
This simple method is the one that I use when we have too many lemons on the trees. We grow the lemons for their fragrant perfume when in flower, and, use the lemons as an important ingredient in many dishes. When preserved they will keep for up to one year.
