When you want to keep those delicious Meyer lemons all year long, what do you do?... You preserve them! (Even more good news, it's so easy to do!) Just slice the lemons (I chose to do thin slices so they would be ready to use even faster because I have absolutely no patients...) After slicing the lemons layer them in a glass canning jar with a plentiful layer of salt between each layer when you reach the top press the lemons down and add a few more then top off with salt and sill the lid! Let the lemons set for a few days to a week ( I ended up getting into mine on day 4 and they were ready) I absolutely love preserved lemons, I use them in just about everything I cook from a light lemon garlic chicken pasta, sautéd shrimp, baked parmesan asparagus, to adding zest to a fresh salad. I have even used them as a salty, sour garnish for cocktails!

Do you refrigerator them or just sit on table

I refrigerate mine, I live in the South so with as hot as it gets I don't really trust leaving anything out...

This looks amazing! What kind of salt do you use?

I used sea salt, but I am sure you could probably use kosher or canning salt!

Great idea for savoury! Wondering if swapping salt for sugar would do for sweet or if that is too simplistic an idea. ?

I don't know if it would preserve them in the same way? The best part about preserved lemons is they keep forever!! (Well, ages.) haha

How long do they last?

I usually store mine in the refrigerator and they last well over 6 month, I would safely say 6 months to a year ( but I really can't be sure because mine end up being used before that...)
