Preserved Lemons

I made up a batch last night. I have only tried making them once before and really enjoyed them in a number of recipes. It was only a small amount, so this time I made up a full litre jar, which fit 5 fairly large lemons and the juice from two more. Here is a shot of the first day. Fairly cloudy. I will post another in 30 days when they are ready.

Can you please provide a recipe? Do you think it is adaptable to limes?; to my taste, Rose's lime juice does not hold a candle to real lime juice.

I just got this recipe from Epicurious.com. The first time I tried it I didn't use any spices and they were very good. I found this recipe fairly quickly and figured,"why not?". Very easy, you don't have to vacuum seal or anything. Heck, you don't even hae to refrigerate if you don't want to. At least according to this recipe. Other recipes call for leaving it out for 2 or 3 days then refrigerating for a few weeks. It is pretty hot here, so I think I may toss them in the fridge in a few days. Just to prevent any disasters.
I don't see why it wouldn't work with limes.

I've done this with limes and really liked them.

I don't understand the purpose, since fresh lemons and limes are available year-round.

Once you use them a couple of times, you will figure out a way to use them more often. I usually mince or dice them.

Distinctly different than fresh. Very North African.

Use then in tagines, couscous, as a condiment for chicken and lamb.

I love these things.
