I am hoping to enjoy lots of North African inspired recipes come Summertime, so I decided to go ahead and make my own Preserved Lemons. In the past, I have to admit, I have always purchased them from a Middle Eastern store, not this time, especially as its pretty easy and thrifty to make your own. Follow any recipe for Preserved Lemons and just add a couple of bay leaves, a few fresh red chillies, pierced along with a handful of coriander seeds.
I hope to be enjoying and sharing some of these pickly lemons next month.
I am linking this rather large jar of home-made Preserved Lemons with Red Chillies with Nazima at Working London Mummy and Laura at How To Cook Good Food for the One Ingredient: Lemon event; and Jill at Real Food Forager who is hosting Fat Tuesday 29th May 2012.
