Preserved Lemons

I love making ingredients that get used to prepare other foods.  Lately I’ve been all about the pickles and preserved foods.  I made preserved lemons this weekend.  I had some of these lemons cut up finely with beets at a friend’s house and they were amazing.  Super strong flavor.  It’s just salt, lemons and lemon juice.  You wash off the salt before you use them. They are a Moroccan staple.  Used in tagines (Moroccan stew) and such.  I used this recipe from Simply Recipes.    Now I just have to wait 3 months to see how they taste.
