Method of preparation:

1.Slice the lemon(make a deep X in the lemon).Actually when you end with slicing, you will get a lemon cut into quarters.

2.Pinch the lemon so that it is separated into halves after that. You should cover it in a little less than half a tablespoon of salt. Pinch it in half the other way and in the other half pour the same amount of salt.

3.Put salt into the jar and then press the salt-filled lemon.

4.Squeeze the lemon and put in the jar.

5.Close the jar and let it stay for 2-3 days. Press the lemons down once a day.

6.Wait 3 weeks before utilizing.

To use, rinse the lemons, scrape off the pulp, discard any seeds and chop or mince the rind. For up to 6 months they will keep in the fridge.

It is the rind that you  are going to utilize in your recipes when you have preserved lemons. Just rinse the salt off, remove the flesh from the rind, and add them to everything.
