I just made my first batch of preserved lemons: once they are ready, do I rinse them before using? Do I only use the peel or the whole lemon?

Rinse them thoroughly before eating. You chop up the peel and eat--scrape the flesh off and toss. Yes, it does seem like a waste, doesn't it?

I use the whole damn thing and never rinse it. But I like all that flavour. Just be sure to taste before salting!

LOL! Looks to me as though the choice is yours.

I've also been using the whole thing. Just remember to take out the seeds.
