Preserved Lemons Recipe

Our Meyer lemon tree is packed with lemons now. This tree knows its job. It produces lemons year round. When life gives you lemons make preserved lemons. This formula is straight out of Claudia Roden's book Arabesque; a great book on the cuisine of Morocco, Turkey and Lebanon. The amount of lemons and juice needed will depend on the size of container used. I used a one gallon mason type jar. Avoid using a container with any metal or plastic as the acid and salt will damage the containter. Glass is best. Some say you can use water rather than lemon juice. I don't agree. I think using all lemon juice yields the best results. Though you can refrigerate after the lemons have cured it isn't absolutely necessary. After all this was a means of preserving before there was refrigeration. If refrigerated they will last up to a year in a sealed jar.
