Salted Lemons
What You Need:
  • 4 lemons
  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • How To Cook:
    1. With a small, sharp knife, slice each of the lemons lengthwise into quarters, cutting to within about ˝ inch of the bottom so that the segments are not completely separated.

    2. Sprinkle the cut surfaces evenly with the salt and reassemble the lemons, pressing them gently into their original shape.

    3. Place the lemons in a canning jar large enough to hold them compactly, cover tightly with the lid, and marinate at room temperature for at least 2 weeks.

    4. Discard the juice that has accumulated in the jar and completely separate the lemons into quarters.

    5. The salted lemons are used in tajine such as tajine msir zitum and el lahm el m'qali.
