Preserved Lemon and Hand-Rolled Cous Cous
+ $ shipping surcharge
Embrace the Mediterranean.
Try some international cooking with this bundle of Tunisian ingredients: organic preserved lemons, and cous cous. This cous cous is hand-rolled, meaning each grain is formed by rolling together semolina and water into tiny spheres. It soaks up liquid and flavors fantastical well, and cooks in no time. Preserved lemons have been salted and aged, giving the citrus an intense yet mellow flavor. There's no mouth-puckering tartness, which lets the lemon essence shine in cooking. If you've never tried them before, rest assured that they'll be an amazing addition to your kitchen, just as a little salt and acid can transform a dish.
