Salt cured/pickled lemons

ksmith51432 | Jan 20, 2009 05:16 AM

just before Christmas I got a really good buy on lemons and decided to salt cure them;
they've been in the lemon juice/kosher salt brine now for 33 days, being faithfully turned daily; I have recipes to use them, know to discard the pulp and rinse the peels; but how do I store them? can I slice and freeze them? some sites call for repacking in water or oil; or can I just leave in the salt/lemon juice and store in the refrigerator ? there are 10 or 12 lemons squashed into a widemouth quart jar; I suspect it will take me a long time to use them up- unless I share with friends. ( if they're good) - they look very pretty.
