Preserved Lemons

1 clean sealing jar
4-6 lemons
kosher or sea salt (`1/2 cup)
Juice of 3 lemons

Cut lemons open but not through and stuff with salt.  Press into jar and fill with remaining salt and cover with lemon juice.  Place in sunny place for 3-7 days and then refrigerate.  Use lemon peel in many dishes and liquid for dressings.



Yoghurt tahini sauce

1/2 cup good plain yoghurt
1 clove garlic, minced
3 heaping tbs tahini
2 tsp lemon or lime juice
pinch salt

Mix all ingredients together. The tahini will cause the sauce to thicken quickly. Use on grilled Pide or Naan or as a crudit� dip.


Enjoy!
