These preserved lemons are in a safflower and cumin salt-brine, infusing them with delicate spices. During the preserving process, the lemons lose their sharpness, but their citrus-flavour is intensified. They are a deeper yellow than fresh lemons, with a softer, edible rind.

Preserved lemons are often added to chicken tagines. Also use slivers of preserved lemon in tabbouleh salads and tzatziki dips, and even add a couple of halves to a tray of mixed vegetables before roasting.

Ingredients: Lemons, water, salt, pepper, safflower (osfor), black cumin, acetic acid, citric acid, preservativee sodium metabisulphite
