Spiced Lemon Slices

This is a condiment that is traditionally used for Moroccan dishes, but it's also tasty with other items that benefit from a burst of lemon flavor like fish or poultry. It's also a great gift for your favorite cook.


Sprinkle some of your salt in the bottom of the jar.

Place a lemon slice on top of the salt. Sprinkle the lemon slice with a little more salt. Repeat the process until all the slices and salt are in the jar. Press down on the lemon slices as you go to release some of the juice.

Add the spices and lemon juice. The lemons need to be completely covered with juice. Add more if necessary.

Cover tightly with lid and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days. Give the jar a good shake every now and again.

After about a week the lemons are ready to use, but they will continue to get better over time. They will keep in the refrigerator for about 6 months.


Time to prepare: 15 minutes.

This recipe is vegetarian.

Serves 1 qt. (3 cups).
