Moroccan-style preserved lemons (known as l’hamd marakad) add an essential tartness to your culinary endeavors, tagines in particular. These lemons take about seven days to pickle, but all you need is the basics: fruit, salt, and a nice spice blend.
Optional: Safi spices (see below) or green peppercorns, bay leaves, and coriander seeds.
Above: The traditional Safi mixture includes cinnamon, clove, coriander, black peppercorns, and bay leaves (see Epicurious for exact measurements).
Above: Quarter the lemons, leaving a half inch at the bottom uncut, then sprinkle coarse salt inside the fruit.
Above: In addition to the dry ingredients, prepare 1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice to add to the jar. Add the lemons to a sterilized jar, add coarse salt and lemon juice, and stack the lemons to the top. Reseal the jar by submerging in boiling water or by the oven.
