Have you tried preserved lemons! Great for so many recipes. Just, top tail, quarter, layer with salt, squish in a sealable jar, tightly, top with lemon juice. leave for 3 weeks min. Top up as used with oil. Should last chilled and sealed in fridge about 2-3 years. Flavour only increases. A base for many recipes.

As much as I would like to take the credit for the lemon pickle recipe, it was actually first posted by evorotorua and I'd like to ensure she gets any credit that may be going.

bev00, Dec 18, 8:35am
600gms lemons (Meyer if possibel)
1 cup white vinegar
2 cups finely diced onion
2 tabs finely chopped garlic
1 fresh chilli, finely chopped (seeds optional)
2 tsps cinnamon
8 whole cloves
2 whole star anise
3 cups brown sugar
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

cut the lemons into thin wedges, slice off the pith at the end of each wedge and remove all the pips. Place in a havey-based saucepan and just cover with water. Place on high heat and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, place a lid on and cook on low for 1-1/2 hours. check from time to time and add more water if necessary. there should be about 1 cup of liquid left after 1-1/2 hours.
Add the remaining ingredients and simmer slowly until the mixture thickens to the consistency of jam or chutney (about an hour or so). Remove and store in a couple of jars. You can halve this recipe, but I assure you, you'll find plenty of uses for this interesting condiment (it will keep for at least 4 months, refrigerated

Gorgeous with a selection of cheddar cheese, pickled onions and bread and butter pickles!"

Hi nfh1 and buzzy110. Those are my notes to go with the recipe. I am pleased you are enjoying it. I love it with some tasty cheese. I don't 'cool' the lemons between blanching but rather just pour the whole lot through a colander with the water going down the sink. Put the 'pulp' back into the pot, cover with cold water and bring it back to the boil. Last time I made this, I didn't have any chilli flakes so I used a little bit of cayenne instead. Be careful with that as it can be very hot but nice too. It just lacks the nice colour contrast the flakes give it.
