Looking for vegetarian recipes that I could incorporate these home made beauties
Anything! And I'm not kidding. I've mixed them into homemade butter, served them over eggs, on any pasta dish. I've made preserved lemon salad dressing. Last week, I sliced the rinds thin and used them for cocktail garnish on a lemon thyme gin and tonic. The are my favorite condiment after kimchi and other ferments, I think.
A favorite of mine which originated in a food magazine from New Zealand, DISH -- and the inspiration for

Think of dishes where you would use lemon - pasta, seafood or dishes with chickpeas.
