Step 1
1. Place 1 tablespoon coarse salt into a sterilised jar.
Step 2
2. Wash lemons well and cut a small slice off each end of the lemon. Without cutting right the way through the lemon cut into quarters from top to bottom. Rub a generous tablespoon of salt on all the cut edges of the lemon and squeeze as many lemons as possible into your jar. Add a few bay leaves and peppercorns.
Step 3
3. Cover the lemons with extra lemon juice and boiling water. Seal the jar and place in a cool place turning the jar every few days. Use after a month.
Step 4
3. Once opened keep refrigerated. Rinse off extra salt before using the pulp and rind when cooking Moroccan style dishes or whenever you want a lovely lemon flavour in savoury dishes.
