Preserved Lemons Middle Eastern Style
15 mins (prep 15)

This is Stephanie Alexander's recipe and it's one of the simplest I've seen. I have 2 jars on top of my fridge and they look great as well as adding an incredible depth of citrus flavour to foods. Let the lemons mature for at least 4 weeks before using, and the final result keeps a whole year without refrigerating, so get your old empty jars out!
