    Zeldaz's Note:

    From the "Seven Fires" Argentine cookbook. "The combination of fruitiness, bitterness, and a floral bouquet in a lemon confit helps to focus and refine the powerful flavor of grilled meat, poultry, and fish." You could also chop some of it finely to add to a vinaigrette or a light pasta dish. You can save your juiced lemon halves in the freezer until you have enough to make a batch. Also, if you cannot use the confit fast enough, you may want to store it in small containers in the freezer to eliminate the possibility of microbial growth.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the lemons in half; squeeze the juice and reserve it for another use.
    2. 2
      Put the squeezed lemon halves in a large saucepan and add the bay leaves, peppercorns, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the white wine, and salt. Add enough water to completely cover the lemons and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook gently over medium-low heat until the lemon peel is tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool in the liquid.
    3. 3
      Drain the lemons and tear the peel into rough strips about 1 inch wide. Place a strip of lemon peel skin side down on the work surface and, using a sharp paring knife, scrape away every bit of the white pith, leaving only the yellow zest. Repeat with the remaining peel.
    4. 4
      Put the strips of lemon zest in a small container ond cover completely with olive oil. The confit will keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for at least a week.
