Save Recipe

Ingredients

12 lemons

1 cup kosher salt

Fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 Tbsp pickling salt

Directions

  1. Sterilize a 1-quart glass preserving jar with boiling water right before filling with lemons. Slice lemon from bud end to within 1/2-inch of stem end. Turn lemon 90 degrees and repeat. Open lemon slightly and pack inside with salt. Pack into jar and repeat with remaining lemons. Add enough lemon juice to cover to the top. Add pickling salt and close jar tightly. Set aside to pickle for at least 3 weeks. Every few days, turn jar over to redistribute juices and let stand on its head for a few days, then invert again.;
