Mourad's Moroccan Preserved Lemons

Preserved lemons are Morocco's "national anthem of flavor," according to Moroccan-born chef Mourad Lahlou, owner of San Francisco's award-winning Aziza restaurant. Mourad developed our exclusive recipe, which calls for pickling Eureka lemons in a brine of lemon juice, salt and water for 30 days to create a silken texture and distinctive salty-tart flavor. The lemons are a versatile seasoning and provide an immediate boost of flavor to everything from tagines, braises, soups, sauces and vinaigrettes to vegetables, pastas and meats. 12 oz. Made in USA A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Preserved lemons
September 12, 2013
The lemons were too salty and expensive. I now make my own. Boil a mason jar for sterilization. Wash lemons (dependent on size of jar & lemons 4-6) I cut ends off, slice 3/4 way down in quarters, open, sprinkle with sea salt and jam as many as possible in jar, seal with lid. Leave on countertop, every few days turn upside down. Lemons ready in about 1 week. As you use lemons just add more. These will last for years.
Pros: Easy to Prepare, Healthy
Cons: Flavor

Scratched my itch, but I'd rather make my own
July 2, 2013
I have been wanting to buy or make preserved lemons for years now after having them in some moroccan dishes that I loved. I was hoping for a little more kick in the flesh of the lemon, and I get mostly salt. Perhaps this is something I would achieve making it homemade as well, but it would be way less costly and worth the effort. I also wish they were seedless lemons.
Pros: Amount, Authentic, Good for Entertaining
Cons: not seedless, salty
