Pickled lemon peels

An easy way to keep the acid ingredient needed for so many dishes.

Instructions

  1. 1Wash the lemons and peel the rinds being very careful to cut only the outer skin, the green part. The white is very bitter and will spoil the preparation.
  2. 2The peelings will come out in strips, then cut these strips about half inch long.
  3. 3Put the strips in a jar, squeeze the juice from the peeled lemons and add enough juice to cover the peels completely. Add 3 teaspoons of salt to each jar and close the jars tightly.
  4. 4Keep the jar(s) in a cool place for two or three days adding more lemon juice as the peels absorb the juice.
  5. 5Keep in the refrigerator and use for salads, meats, sandwiches or in whichever recipe that requires lemon and salt. They will last for several months unspoiled.
