Lemon candied with salt


Candle the lemon with salt.
Candied lemons are delicious with fish, poultry and in vegetarian dishes and even in desserts. If you use lemon slices, make sure that the remaining slices are always covered with olive oil. They will turn mouldy if they come into contact with the air. Best used within 4 months. Do not throw away the oil but use it for salad dressings or other recipes.

  • Rinse the slices, drain and dry them
  • Put the slices in a sterilised jar
