Great Every Bite tip from Marci (Making Preserved Lemons)

A few weekends ago, Every Bite participated in the inaugural Terry Avenue Saturday Market in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. We had someone stop by our tent, Marci, who gave us a great tip we wanted to share with you:

She said she uses lemons often (in water, recipes, etc.) and instead of composting the lemons, she puts them, cut side up, in a mason jar and sprinkles with kosher salt (couple of teaspoons). Then you can just seal up and leave on the kitchen counter. They are fine to leave on the counter because they are preserved, and nothing will grow in that environment, but if you would like to keep them in the refrigerator, they will keep for a year.

Then, just keep adding the lemons and salt on top until filled and let rest for a month before you start using them. Once you do you them, it’s the rind (not the juice or pulp) that is used in dishes. Just rinse off, peel away the rind and use in a variety of dishes, including grain salads, salad dressings, stews, pasta dishes, or, as Marci said she liked to do, just eat them straight out of the jar! So easy to make and so delicious!

Thanks for sharing Marci and feel free to respond to this post sharing other ideas and uses for preserved lemons!
