Cut lemons, fill with salt, put in a jar, cover with lemon juice, let ferment. The recipe for preserved lemons hasn’t really changed since the 12th century, when these instructions appeared in an Egyptian tome titled On Lemon, Its Drinking and Use.

A staple in Moroccan and North African cuisine, preserved lemons have a depth of flavor not found in their fresh counterpart—a “lemon umami.” Add preserved lemons to tagines, stews, salads, pastas, seafood, and dirty martinis: you can try them anywhere a recipe calls for lemon.
