Squeeze The Lemon

Thursday, October 6, 2011

I have a confession - I love lemons! It's probably because of my Polish-Russian heritage. I remember having them with everything, especially salads, grilled goat cheese and on fish (salmon, tuna). The other day I spotted Victoria's awesomely-cool post on how to preserve lemons in jars so they won't loose their rich flavour for months and I got super excited. They are perfect not only for cooking fish, chicken, Moroccan meals or fresh steamed vegetables but they would also make a fantastic dinner-party gift. Don't you think? Lovelies, have you ever pickled lemons?

P.S: Jamie Oliver has a Moroccan twist on the classic recipe.
P.P.S: Chicken, olive and preserved lemon tagine by who else - Jamie:)

No, I've never seen them like this - looks so easy. My husband loves his lemon. I'm mostly a fan of the lemonade variety :) (and lemon curd of course)

That is fantastic, Jen and Morgan, that is a great idea. The Moroccan version would be awesome for Chritmas gifts.
