I recently decided to preserve some lemons and sour oranges. The recipe is really easy. Basically:
1. Cut lemons and oranges as you were going to cut them in half lengthwise, starting from the tip, but do not cut all the way. Keep the pieces attached at the base. Make another cut in a similar manner, so now the lemon/orange is quartered, but again, attached at the base.
2. Apply a lot of salt on the inside and outside of the lemon/orange (make sure you get salt on all the pieces).
3. Squish the lemons and oranges inside a sterilised jar.
4. I topped each jar with a little bit of lemon juice and a bit more salt to make sure the pieces are covered.
This is how mine turned out:
Now that I've made it, I was after some recipes so I can use them. Anyone have any recipes?
