  • Preserved lemons

    • mjes on April 25, 2018

      This requires a minimum of 6 weeks aging - perhaps more. I've made preserved lemons many times but have never used anything other than salt and lemon. Here pepper and bay leaf are added ... I even had some Turkish bay leaves to use. After eight weeks, I'm finally using the lemons for a dressing. It's a great dressing but I'm not sure the pepper and bay leaf in the lemon has any advantage to adding the flavor directly to the dressing. We'll see if I find a better use for the variation on preserved lemons.

Publishers Text

Anyone who has shopped in a farmer's market knows the abundant glories of seasonal produce, from the deep, fruity notes of a sun-ripened tomato to the crisp, green snap of a just-harvested bean; from the intoxicating perfection of a ripe strawberry to the juicy sweetness of a hand-picked peach. Like a trip to the market, The Growers Market brings together the best of nature's bounty, offering delicious recipes and essential ingredient information for more than 100 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nuts.

Celebrating the explosion of interest in locally grown and hand-picked produce, this comprehensive volume features 200 recipes that bring out the special qualities of each ingredient, from tender spring peas to earthy autumnal tubers. In addition, the book is filled with practical advice on how to choose, store, and prepare fresh produce, as well as basic cooking techniques, nutritional information, and suggestions for companion foods. If you want to know the best type of potato for roasting or mashing; the perfect uses for a meyer lemon; or the ideal way to eat an artichoke, then look no further. Bursting with luscious color photographs, The Growers Market is an invaluable resource for gardeners, cooks, and food lovers alike.
