Ingredients

    4 Lemons (unwaxed, organic, preferably local)
    4 tbls Kosher Salt
    Lemon Juice

Directions

Cut each lemon into quarters, keeping them attached at the stem end. Pack a tablespoon of salt into each lemon (in the cuts), and squeeze into a canning jar. Fill jar with enough lemon juice to cover. Store in a cool, dry place for one month. Check regularly to make sure lemons remain covered with lemon juice. Add more juice if necessary. They are ready after one month.
When you are ready to use them, discard the pulp, and rinse the skin to remove the excess salt.
They can also be kept in the fridge up to one year.

***Use unwaxed, organic lemons only.
