What To Do with Preserved Lemon

preserved-lemonDid you know that our good friend Sean of Punk Domestics fame is now the Food Preservation Expert over at About.com? It’s a really nice resource for All Things Preserve-y, and he’s been steadily adding new content. You should go check it out.

And while you’re over there, you can take a look at the little guest post I put together discussing a bunch of different ways to use up preserved lemon, including links to various favorite recipes around the web. So, use up that fermented salty goodness just in time to put up this year’s batch!


  1. The restaurant i work at does its preserved lemons with 75% salt 25% sugar. We use preserved lemons in a lot of sauces. The juice is something wonderful as well. One of the cooks likes to use the juice in a vinaigrette for family meal.

  2. I adore lemons because you can use them for so many different things. I never once thought about doing a jar preserve. So clever! Sounds like it would add that perfect touch of salty tang to any dish.
