No other ingredient, apart from Harissa, exemplifies Tunisian cooking as well as preserved lemons. These lemons are preserved whole and the Mahjoub’s add a mild red pepper to the jar to create an additional layer of flavor. These petite Tunisian lemons are known for their intensity and concentrated citrus flavor. Cut the lemons into thin, small slices and use them to accompany grilled or baked fish, stews, rice, or to create the popular dish of chicken with olives and lemon. Both the rind and the pith can be utilized. As with all of the Mahjoub products, this is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes.
Uses: It might be helpful to think of preserved lemons along the lines of other briny, preserved foods, such as olives or capers. You can use preserved lemons in many of the same dishes where you’d add those ingredients. Most recipes call for using just the peel of the preserved lemon, though the pulp is entirely edible. The preserved peel itself is soft enough to easily slice, chop, or pound into a puree, which is how I typically use it in my cooking, and a little goes a long way.
