DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and dry lemons. Cut each lemon into quarters, do not cut all the way through so that the lemon is still intact and joined together at the base.
  • Spoon about two teaspoons of sea salt into each cut lemon and place the lemon into a sterile glass jar, packing them in tightly. Repeat step until all your lemons you want to preserve have finished.
  • Add juice of one lemon and four teaspoons of sea salt into the jar. Cover lemons with warm water.
  • Seal jar and leave in a cool dark place for 40 days and nights. (You can leave them longer than 40 days if you wish) do not refrigerate until opening.
  • Enjoy.
