South African Lemon Pickle
27 mins (prep 15, cooking 12)
11 ingredients
5-6 servings
This versatile pickle is great with cold meats or cheeses, and is really nice to serve with a cheese board. It originally came from our S A herb guru, Margaret Roberts, who adores lemon for its many uses and medicinal value. The pickle is very good with smoked meats or, finely chopped, as a garnish for oily fish like mackerel, tuna or salmon. As soon as I have enough thick-skinned lemons again, I'll make this again and post a photo!
