Preserved Lemon Recipe

06.25.13 by Jackie

I've received many requests over the years on how to preserve lemons. Once you learn how, it’s so easy you could do it in your sleep. The only ingredients required are lemons, of course, coarse salt and granulated sugar. No cooking is necessary. In this recipe I used Meyer lemons my husband Lulu harvested several months ago, but you could use any non-treated, organic citrus.

You could use them to flavor pasta, cold soups, sauces, salad dressing, dips, stews and many more dishes, including desserts. Stay tuned for a lot more recipes with preserved lemons.

Nimbu Ka Achar (Indian Lemon Pickle Recipe) Recipe

I've been meaning to post this recipe for a while but Daddy, my father-in-law, kept telling me to be more patient. We harvested our last batch of Meyer lemons more than a month ago. I preserved them by making all sorts of pickles. The method is pretty much the same regardless of the cuisine type, but the spices differ. 

Today I'm going to show you how to make my family's favorite, called nimbu ka achar. Halved lemons are pickled in a large amount of coarse sea salt, then flavored with baghar, which is a combination of oil, a lot of spices and a few curry leaves. We enjoy it best with simple, plain basmati rice.
