No other ingredient, apart from Harissa, exemplifies Tunisian cooking as well as preserved lemons. These lemons are fermented whole for 6 months along with a mild red pepper to the jar to create an additional layer of flavor.
These petite Tunisian lemons are known for their umami intensity and concentrated citrus flavor. Cut the lemons into thin, small slices or chop into a paste and use them to accompany grilled or baked fish, stews, rice, or to create the popular dish of chicken with olives and lemon. Both the rind and the pith can be utilized. Phenomenal in cocktails, salad dressings, dips, soups, rice and pastas. Don't toss the juice! It makes a wonderful base for marinades and dressings or even in a dirty martini!
INGREDIENTS Organic lemon, organic red pepper, brine solution (water, salt)
