Do you enjoy having a lemon wedge with your water or like to use lemons when cooking? If you run out of lemons and they are out of season, then you will be out of luck. You should not have this problem if you preserve some for use at a later time. A good option is to preserve lemons in salt.
Preparation is the most important part of the process to preserve lemons in salt. You need to make sure the lemons are fully washed and are not bruised. Lemons are not preserved whole as you will need to cut them into small sections or slices.
A mason jar is all you need to preserve lemons in salt. The goal is to create layers of lemons in the jars by using salt. You need to have salt that does not contain iodine. This means you do not want to use the table salt that is in your cupboard.
