    super easy, and they taste fantastic in a yogurt sauce served with a salad of feta, kale and BBQ chickpeas.

    Bought a Meyer’s lemon tree, and at 3′ tall I have over 20 lemons. I’ve been looking for ideas, so this sounds great!

    I have been preserving lemons for many years using the above recipe with success!
    I use them in tagines, adding X factor to many yummy middle eastern dishes!
    Go for it if you want the real taste of yummy!

    I gave some to a friend, and she put them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. They don’t take up much room, and likely an infinite shelf life. I am considering making a change in the next batch.

    Juice all lemons
    quarter the skins
    remove all seeds
    put all of the juice and pulp over the peels
    Proceed as per normal recipe.

    Advantage, I usually add these to stews or condiments, peel, pulp, juice and all. It is all the salt I need, but the seeds are a detriment to the taste, and are hard to separate out. I am also planning on using a little citric acid with water to make extra liquid so all the peels or quarters are covered. A gallon jar will need about a pint of this acidified water, and will not dilute the ph of the lemon juice.
