- Wash lemons in hot water to be rid of any wax (if bought at a store)
- Cut in half and slice.
- Put a layer of course salt at the bottom of a sterilized jar.
- Layer the lemon, alternating with a layer of salt.
- When the jar is full, press the Lemons down to extract the juice.
- Top up with lemon juice.
- I like to seal the jar with a piece of parchment between the lid and jar to avoid rusting the lid.
- Label and store in a cool place.
- Use whenever lemon is required.
- The flavor intensifies, so use it with caution.
- As you can see, this jar dates to 2017.

Preserved lemon or lemon pickle is a condiment that is common in the cuisines of the Indian subcontinent and Morocco. It was also found in 18th-century English cuisine.
It is also known as “country lemon” and leems. Diced, quartered, halved, or whole lemons are pickled in a brine of water, lemon juice, and salt; occasionally spices are included as well. The pickle is allowed to ferment at room temperature for weeks or months before it is used. The pulp of the preserved lemon can be used in stews and sauces, but it is the peel (zest and pith together) that is most valued. The flavor is mildly tart but intensely lemony.
