You can buy preserved lemons for immediate satisfaction, or you can make them but that takes a while. If that doesn't answer your question feel free to post it in the comments.

I LOVE, LOVE this recipe! I couldn't find preserved lemons in NYC (I think the stores were out of stock) so I simply peeled the lemon and used the lemon strips. It worked out beautifully for a dinner party of 8 and people are still talking about it! Enjoy!

I don't know why most recipes call for discarding the pulp of preserved lemons. Maybe it's textural, cosmetic. But personally, I just chop the entire well preserved lemon pulp and all.
