Time to Preserve

edibleEXTRA

Preserved lemons are one of our favorite ingredients as they are the perfect combination of tangy and sweet. We are lucky enough to have a friend in California that sends them to us in their prime - just picked off her trees.  But wherever you source your citrus from, here are our top five ways to use preserved lemons.

1. Salad Dressing

Mix one preserved lemon with 1/2 cup of olive oil in a food processor or blender for a delicious salad dressing. Add 2 tsp. of sugar if you are looking for extra sweetness. 

2. Over Vegetables & Rice

Chop up appropriate amount of preserved lemons and serve over sautéed mixed vegetables and rice.

3. As a Relish

Mix dates and chopped preserved lemons as a relish for any pork dish. We suggest a nice pork tenderloin.

4.  On Fish

Cut the rind of the lemons up and toss with herbs to top your favorite fish - a white fish is ideal.

5. Spread on a Crostini 

Dice up finely to use as a topping on a toasted crostini with cream cheese and smoked salmon.
