That is what I am - a fool for lemons
Fortunate for me, I had a large harvest of lemons.
Determined not to waste a single lemon, I have been busy canning and preserving lemons for the last couple of days.
Both savory and sweet, I love it all.
It used to be that I preferred sweet lemons with walnuts for my tea but it seems now that I can't get enough of the savory lemon with it's salty goodness. (Not in tea thought, I use the savory in cooking.)
I use the salty lemon in tagines, moroccan recipes, and on roast chicken. It's also perfect in a dressing and in a marinade.
Click here for a savory preserved lemon recipe, the only thing I do different is I add thyme to mine and I add quite a bit more cardomen as I love cardomen.
The savory lemon is good in lemon pasta.
The sweet preserved lemon, is not only good in tea but soothing for a sore throat.
It is so good, I have been know to sneak into the kitchen at night and secretly enjoy it right out of the jar.
Here is a recipe for a basic Lemon Suck recipe because I am too lazy to type one out and I have lemon curd cooking nearly ready to can.
I add cardomen to the sweet preserved lemon because not only am I a fool for lemon but an even bigger fool for cardomen.
