It’s really easy to make your own preserved lemons, you just cut them up and cover them with salt and a little lemon juice and let them sit in the fridge.You can make more, just double or triple the ingredients.
- 2 ripe lemons
- 1/3 cup kosher salt
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
Scrub the lemons well and dry them. Cut them into 8 wedges. Toss with the salt and put in a glass jar (canning jars are good here). Pour in the lemon juice. Close the jar tightly and let the lemons sit at room temperature for 7 days, shaking the jar daily to distribute the salt and juice. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to six months. Be sure to rinse them well before using.
