Preserved lemons are a wonderful ingredient in many recipes especially Middle Eastern ones. This recipe allows you to make your own so they are always available when required.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 kg organic lemons
  • 250g sea salt, coarse or fine
  • olive oil, as required

Preparation:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Wash the lemons and make a cut on the side. Slightly open each lemon and insert some sea salt.
  2. Sterilise preserving jars and lids by placing them into a large saucepan covered with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the jars and lids with tongs.
  3. Place the lemons into the sterilised jars and pour just enough olive oil to cover. Seal the jars and use within 1-2 months.
