If you make the Bittman version, it's a good idea to buy unwaxed lemons (usually organic). There's also a whole thread on the lemons here in the Hotline section:

Mark Bittman has a quickie version you can find on the NYT link for preserved lemons. I've made it many times and it lasts forever in the frig.NJOY!!!
