Product Description

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. As with all of the Mahjoub products, this is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes.

These preserved lemons are essential for North African cooking, and are also indispensable for authentic Sicilian and Mediterranean dishes.

I've tried making my own and cannot come anywhere near achieving the texture and flavor of these. One can almost taste Tunisia in the jar. If you are cooking Moroccan or own a tagine these will add a lot to many meals. The brine is also useful if you use a teaspoon (or less) to add flavor to a sauce or soup. In fact, if you keep searching for the key to making a Sicilian style pasta sauce, use a little of the brine in the sauce - you'll be amazed by the results.

My main use is on fish. I usually coat the fish in olive oil and rub in some spices, and set it on a bed of thickly sliced red onions with some of these lemons sliced on the top. I then bake and - voila! - a wonderful and healthy dinner. Of course if you truly want to get authentic, especially if you own a tagine, prepare your fish with a marinate of Chermoula and slow cook with slices of these lemons on top.

Do not let my focus on fish dishes lead you to conclude that these will not work with meat. I do not eat meat, but friends who cook with preserved lemons rave about how well they go with chicken, lamb and other meats. Of course these would also add a lot of flavor to strictly vegetables. In fact, they are common in vegetable dishes made in a tagine.

I tried the pepper that is in the jar and was not impressed one way or the other with it. It's too mild and it did not seem to impart any flavor to the lemons or the brine.

One thing to note is you need to rinse off the lemons before using them in cooking or your food may be either too salty, overpowered by lemon, or both.

The preserved lemon was delicious and added that much needed flavor of authenticity to my tagine. The product is exactly what you would expect with preserved lemons. My issue were these: one, there are only two lemons in the jar even though in the picture, there looks like there are several so I found it quite expensive for something I will be able to use only for two meals. Next, it's Prime available but be warned that you won't get it in two days. It takes a couple of days to prepare it for shipping so I ordered it on a Monday and even with Prime, I didn't get it until Friday.

The only reason for the average rating, (as preserved lemons are what they are) is that,(be forewarned) there are only two in the jar. I have been able to purchase a larger jar for same price or less online from Williams Sonona in the past, however they no longer carry preserved lemons. Another plus is that postage was included buying through Amazon.

I use Moroccan spices and brown the boneless, skinless chicken thighs first. While the meat is browning I combine three or four tablespoons each of fig and peach preserves and.add it to the browning meat. Then I cook all the ingredients, including cut veggies and a cut, preserved lemon, in a large pottery dish, covered tightly with aluminum
foil, close to two hours in a slow oven--between 325 and 350 degrees. As you can guess, I kind of make up my own recipes.

These preserved lemons impart bright acidity to recipes. They give more lemon flavor than just using fresh lemon juice, but without the bitterness normally associated with the rind. Since they are preserved in brine, any recipe in which the are used must be adjusted for sodium.

I needed preserved lemons for a new chicken recipe. I received these two days after ordering, in perfect shape. The wrapping and shipping was very secure. The recipe turned out great - the lemons were firm and tasty. I will reorder again as needed.

this was not bad, but also not amazing. I think making your own would be superior, but they are kind of a pain the butt, and ultimately for me.. these sufficed..

Product arrived in good shape; lemons are small but well preserved in brine. A bit expensive but most specialty products are. I would buy this again.
