Lemon Recipes

We have been lucky enough to given lots of lemons and have had great pleasure sharing them and have made Lemon Sorbet for the first time, I have now got requested for more, but have run out of lemons.

As well we are now on our second batch of Preserved Lemons, here is our amended recipe and method.

8 thin skinned juicy lemons
Cold water
Rock salt
Large glass screw-top jar
3 bay leaves
Boiling water

Break the pores of the lemon by scraping gently against the medium setting of grater.
Place in large bowl and cover completely with cold water. Put aside in cool place.
Next day, pour the water off the lemons and cover with fresh water.This removes any bitterness.

 On the third day, pour off the water. Using a sharp knife and chopping board, make 4 deep slits in each lemon (they should go about halfway to the centre). Pack each incision with a good heaped teaspoon of rock salt. Place stuffed lemons in a glass jar, bay leaves.

Pour boiling water over contents and screw on lid while the water is still hot. Leave for 40 days in a cool dark place.

 We uses our last batch in a  tajine and  they made the meals fabulous.
