Preserved Lemons are used in many Moroccan dishes. You can save a lot of money by making these at home.



10 lemons

3/4 cup salt


Partially quarter each of the lemons and add 1T salt to each one.

Press them into a quart jar

If you do not get all the juice to cover the lemons, use lemon juice to finish.

Store in a dark cupboard for about a month.

Additional Tips

Add as a flavor to dressings, salads, or just use the brine as a flavoring.
