Something magical happens to lemons when preserved with salt and allowed to ferment. Numerous cultures have known this for many years and thus regional variations of this amazing pantry staple can be found across the globe. This version includes the subtle infusion of bay leaf & garlic.
The inclusion of preserved lemon takes many dishes to another level. The astringent component of fresh lemon is replaced by what is best described as "lemon umami" and lots of it! Get ready to have fun in the kitchen. A good place to start is a traditional Moroccan Chicken Tagine or Persian style Couscous. Then a myriad of fish dishes await along with pasta dishes, risotto's and grain salads (think Quinoa, Faro, Barley, Rice).
Ingredients: fresh local lemons, Australian pink rock salt, fresh lemon juice, fresh bay leaves & garlic
