Preserved Lemons
15 mins (prep 15)
5 ingredients
10 servings
Preserved lemons are a popular ingredient for Middle Eastern recipes. I saw this recipe on SBS's Food Safari. It appeared in the Moroccan episode and the chef's name is Malika Ennaim. This recipe is perfect when lemons are in season Try picking unblemished fruit for best results. You could use as many lemons as you wish, however the equation will always be two teaspoons per cut lemon (as per Step 1), Step 2 will always be the same (juice of one lemon, four teaspoons of sea salt and warm water to cover lemons). Lemons will be ready in 40 days.
