Washed my lemons well, cut off the ends.
Salt in the bottom of the jar.
Cut slits in lemons, poured salt into the cuts. (Not as painful as it sounds!)
And stuffed cut salted lemons into the jars, with more salt between them.
I had a two pound package, about 10 lemons, and I filled 3 jars. The first one more than the others.
I think a comment left on the Food in Jars page, by Kitty Morse is important to mention here.
"The most important ingredient in making preserved lemons (citrons confits) is PATIENCE. Wait at least 3 or 4 weeks (with jars on a kitchen shelf) until the rind is soft enough to cut with a fork.
Then you have a PRESERVE. Then, and only then, do you refrigerate the lemons. Lemons
floating in water are NOT preserved, merely pickled in brine."
I'll post an update in a week or so. Wish me luck!
