    These are so delicious! I've started finely dicing the rind and sprinkling it over all of my salads. I'm definitely going to keep a jar of these in my fridge from now on... so easy.

    Thank you! OMG, I've never thought abut dicing them up for salads!! That's brilliant and definitely trying it on my next salad.

    It's genius... in fact I can't take credit for the idea. I saw it in one of the genius recipes, couldn't find preserved lemons in my local stores, so found your recipe for making my own! Here's the salad that tipped me off...

    Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! Love that candied ginger is in it too.

    Love homemade preserved lemon; thanks for the suggestion to leave it out first, and then place in the refrigerator. To pump up the flavor, I added Szechwan peppercorns, star anise, and a cinnamon stick.

    Thanks Ms. Mahoney and loving your idea of pumping up the flavor. Definitely adding those spices next time I make preserved lemons.
