Looking for a budget-friendly, DIY project for the week? Make preserved lemons. The process is about three steps long, and all you need is fruit, salt, and time. (Hands-off time, that is.) Quartered lemons get a healthy blanket of salt, a little spice, and are nestled into a jar, cozying up to each other. A week later, you’ll have slouchy, softened rinds to add a perfumed, complex tartness to dishes like this one, or this. In the time it took you to read this post, your lemons could be well on their preserving way.
