food for thought: got lemons?
the other day, a gardener around the corner from my house was giving away a big sack of lemons, so naturally we grabbed ‘em! just the smell of them was heaven. now normally, lemons — i’d make lemonade, but some friends had been telling me how easy it was to make preserved lemons, so i decided this morning before i started blogging i was going to do just that. i have never preserved anything before, but this was indeed, quite easy and most gratifying — i love making things like this from scratch. they’re wonderful served as a condiment with middle eastern and Moroccan meals, and grilled fishes like salmon and roasted chicken. i love these pretty weck jars for canning. here’s a look at what i did — and you can download a copy of the recipe you see below [ right here. ]
