Preserved lemons are a common flavoring agent in Moroccan cuisine, particularly in very slow braises known as tagines. They are also found as an unusual cocktail garnish.

Ingredients Edit

Procedure Edit

  1. Poke holes in the lemons with a sharp knife. Pack them in an airtight jar, separating them from one another with salt.
  2. Cover the jar, and store in a dark place for a day. If the lemons have not released enough liquid to cover, add additional salt and reseal the jar.
  3. Store in a cool dark place for approximately 2 weeks. Refrigerate afterwards.
