Lemons are delicious, healthy, rich in vitamin C and their use in the kitchen is not only culinary. When I saw an algerian recipe for chicken and "citrons confits", I knew I had to find a traditional recipe to be true to the recipe. I forgot where I found the original recipe but here is the way I do my preserved lemons. I keep them for about a year or so and they still are delicious. They are kept in olive oil, which adds to my need for tasty oils in my salads, soups, pastas or casseroles, after the lemons are gone. So here it is!!
