Preserved Lemon

This unique ingredient is Lemon that has been scored, salted and preserved in a jar for a minimum of a week but usually longer. Preserved lemons can be used chopped up to flavor Aïoli, Vinaigrette, relish, chutney or sauces or used whole to flavor stews. Preserved lemons are a unique ingredient with a floral-fruity-salty-tart flavor but similar substitutes would be Meyer Lemon and Black Lime.
