One of the best ways to use a lemon is preserving it. The flavor a preserved lemon has is unlike any other. The best part of a preserved lemon is since it is preserved it will last a lot longer in the refrigerator and can be use throughout a 6 month period. The basic ingredients are lemons and salt but you can also use herbs if you would like to add another element of flavor. Simply cut the lemons into wedges and toss in kosher salt. Place the lemons in a jar for storage and use for marinades, sauces, rice, dressings and cocktails.
