preserved lemons home

My Gran has always preserved her own lemons and this is the recipe she has passed down to us.

With a full lemon tree in our backyard I make jars and jars of these and give them to friends. We use in sweet and savoury dishes and have even been known to eat straight out of the jar!


  • 1 kg Lemons
  • 10 cloves
  • 1/2 cup sea salt
  • 800 mills lemon juice
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 bay leaves
