It is quick, easy and economical to make your own preserved lemons, and they will be far better than what you can find in exotic groceries — and you’ll save so much money. You can expect to pay $10 or more for a pint jar of preserved lemons, but you can make your own for only about $3 per pint and a few minutes of your time.

Now, while lemons are pretty and priced right in the stores, buy in a nice supply to have for future meals. If you find organic lemons, get those; if not, give them a good scrub.

Homemade Preserved Lemons Recipe

For each pint:
