Salt Preserved Citrus 


Month 2 of the food in Jars Mastery Challenge was just right for me. I have always wanted to make salt preserved lemons but never had a reason to. This February I decided to make both salt preserved lemons and key limes. 

For the lemons I used a recipe from The Homemade Kitchen by Alana Chernila. I can. It wait to try them. 


I am the most excited about the key limes. I can not wait to add these to some tacos. I’m dissapointes that I’ve never tried salt preserved citrus before considering that it’s so simple. 


Salt, sliced fruit, salt, sliced fruit, salt and you are done. I did have to add a bit of key lime juice just to avoid air contact on the top layer.
