Preserved lemons are commonly used in North African and some Middle Eastern kitchens to flavor stews, salads, sauces, and more. A 12th-century Egyptian recipe describes a method similar to what is used today: slit the lemons, coat with salt, pack into a jar, cover them with lemon juice, and leave until pickled (the process takes about one month). The resulting lemons taste intensely tangy and just a little bit funky; generally the peel is used and the pulp is discarded.
