Preserved lemon
Preserved lemon is such an asset in the kitchen. It adds a blast of flavour to vegetables and slow cooked meats and a little goes a very long way. To make preserved lemons, the lemons are cut into wedges with salt rubbed into it's skin. The wedges are then stored in jars in lemon juice for about 6 weeks until the salt and lemon breaks through the fibre of the lemon peel making it soft.
Use the skin and not the flesh of the lemon when cooking.
Preserved lemons can be bought in jars near the other pickles and condiments or you can make your own.
