A classic Moroccan ingredient widely used in North African cuisine, these pickled thin-skinned lemons of the aromatic Beldi variety add a uniquely pungent and intense citrus flavour to dishes.
Beldi lemons are preserved whole in a simple brine of water & salt. Preserved lemons pack a strong citrus taste, different to that of fresh lemons. They are an indispensable ingredient of Moroccan cooking, essential to tagines and make a very good pair in recipes with green olives.
Cut the lemons in half in & roast with potatoes, meat or vegetables or finely slice to add to roasts, salads & relishes.
