“Tangy slivers of preserved lemon make wonderful additions to rice and pasta dishes and salads, as well as adding zest to chicken and fish.” - by THOMASSHERBOURNE
Original recipe yields 32 pieces
- Toss the lemon slices in kosher salt to coat, and place them into a sterile 2 quart glass jar. Pour in the lemon juice, cover tightly, and let stand on the counter for 1 week. Turn the jar over daily. At the end of the week, top the jar off with enough olive oil to cover the lemons. This will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 months.
- To use, pull the lemon pulp from the peel, and scrape out the pith to leave only the yellow rind. Julienne, and add to your favorite dish for a lemony zing.

"Great idea! I removed the pulp from the rind after the 7 days and went ahead and julienned it then. I got almost a half pint jar which will probably last me less time than its shelf life! Couldn't b..." See morering myself to discard the pulp though...I used a little of it in a martini. Very good. I used the rest in a marinade. Equally great results!"
"Just a tip, use Meyer lemons, they taste sooooo much better. Also, lightly rinse the lemons before using to take off some of the salt...." See more"
