Preserved Lemons

2012 028

Lemons Preserved in Salt.  This is what it looks like after some time in the jar. I was in a hurry and didn’t get pictures of the fruit taken out of the skin, chopped in pieces and added on top of the hummus. But it was delicious. More salty than sour.

I loved the way this photo came out with colors of the green glass of the bowl coming out. I’ve had this glass bowl since I was 18, so it has moved around with me a lot. It’s amazing it’s lasted. Now I’ve said something someone will probably drop it—ha ha.
