Tara Kitchen Sauces Preserved Lemons
Preserved lemons are lemons 2.0. They add an intense, concentrated lemon flavor to the dish without the sour tartness. The preserving process brings down the tartness while accentuating the lemon flavor. Common in North African cuisine, they've earned a spot in more and more American kitchens because of their ease of use and delicious 'secret ingredient' quality.
Thinly slice, dice or mince the entire preserved lemon and add it to hundreds and hundreds of dishes to impart lemon essence, slight acidity, major umami, and saltiness.
We love them blended into homemade hummus, infused into soups and pastas, roasted with fingerling potatoes, and mixed into legumes and salads.
