#CooksTip provided by Amanda @ Maroc Mama
Preserved lemons are the ingredient that makes Moroccan cuisine what it is. A Moroccan pantry simply cannot exist without a jar of preserved lemons. Most often they are used in tajines though you will also find them in salads and fish dishes.
#CooksTip for Preserving Lemons:
After you have gathered your lemons, salt, and clean air tight sealing container (the only ingredients needed), begin cutting a lemon. You will want to cut through the skin but DO NOT cut all the way through. Cut in half the other way, again taking care not to cut through the lemon. You can leave it in 1/4 slices or you can cut diagonally to create 8 segments. I can not stress enough that the lemon should remain whole, just cut down to one side.
