spiced lemons recipe
add a bit of their chopped peel to couscous, dhal or vegetable and chicken dishes

Cut lemons into quarters and layer them in a strainer positioned over a bowl. Sprinkle lemons evenly with salt. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and set aside for 2 days.

Packed drained lemon quarters into a large (or two smaller) glass-preserving jar. Add peppercorns, bay, cardamoms and cinnamon. Store in a cool place for one month before using, giving the jar a turn once each day.
