Preserved Meyer Lemons: A Touch of Brightness in Winter Dishes

Preserved Meyer lemonsA mainstay of North African cooking, preserved lemon is a great way to bring brightness and intensity of flavor to winter dishes. Using Meyer lemons instead of regular ones still gives you a powerful taste but with a little sweetness as well. You can use them in any dish where you would use lemon or lemon zest and salt to impart a more complex flavor for fish, stews and braises, soups, pasta, hummus — whatever. Elizabeth even makes a preserved lemon ice cream. It’s a fun ingredient to experiment with.

Forget anyone this holiday? Preserved Meyer lemons also make an excellent handmade gift.

Preserved Meyer lemons are also easy to make, though you need to plan a little in advance. Check out the recipe on Brooklyn Supper and get cracking!
