After tasting the most delicious lemon preserves made by Homegrown Neighbor and Full Circle Gardening proprietress Lora Hall, I was inspired to make some with the fruit of our prolific lemon tree. Instead of a sweet spread, the lemon preserves were tangy and salty and fantastically delicious over beans and quinoa.
I plucked a hoard of lemons from our tree and followed Hunter Angler Gardener Cook's recipe. The recipe calls for an enormous amount of salt. Frankly, a horrifying amount a salt. Enough salt to make me think that the results will be unpalatable. I've put them aside to cure until early February. I'm looking forward to trying them when they are ready.
