    Mirj's Note:

    This is an adaptation of Paula Wolfert's quick method, made even faster by blanching the lemons first. We love it in all kinds of salads and as a low-fat alternative to olives.

      I crammed 6 lemons (with salt) into a 24 ounce jar; it was completely filled and had no room for extra juice. (Since I had already juiced the other lemons, I made Lemonade instead.) When you cut the hot lemons, be prepared for a gush of steaming hot juice! You might want to work over a bowl so you can catch it. I used the more traditional cut-in-four-without-separating-the-pieces.

      This is a 5 star recipe not only based upon appearance and taste, but convenience! The lemon pieces, chopped or whole, are suitable for addition to anything that might benefit by a bit of lemon. I leave the salt on, but reduce the over-all salt content until a taste test. Great on pasta with oil and garlic!!
