Preserved Lemons

We’ve got two versions of this recipe so no matter what, it's ready time for the holidays. One bakes in the oven to speed up the preservation process ( see the video here), the other will do all the work itself sitting in a jar for a couple of weeks. Enjoy this Moroccan delicacy by rinsing well and adding to tagine and couscous recipes like this one from Tyler Florence.

Recipes:
Citrus Curd
Modify this classic Barefoot Contessa recipe using oranges, limes and lemons. It’s silky-smooth and bursting with sweet and tangy flavor for fewer than 50 calories per tablespoon. Spread it on toast, sandwich between cookies or whisk into salad dressing and marinades. Have you tried it?
Recipe:

Note: For best results use un-waxed, organic citrus.
