Salty Lemons? The idea was new to us at Three Kitchens Podcast, but in fact, preserving lemons in salt has been done for centuries.
An actual recipe for salt preserved lemons has been dated to the 12th century. This Egyptian recipe is almost exactly the same recipe of today. Essentially, the lemons are packed in course salt and lemon juice and let sit in a cool, dark spot for about a month. The flavour they add to dishes like stews, curries and roasted veggies is out of this world!
Hungry for some Moroccan flavours, Heather is slow preserving lemons in salt and then cooking up a North African inspired meal with these lemons for this episode. These lemons have become a kitchen staple for all of us, and it's not unusual to hear us reference them in many more episodes. We love them that much, and we know you will too.
