Preserved Whole Lemons - Beldi Variety
Delices du Luberon
Description: Our Preserved Whole Lemons are perfect for re-creating North African dishes in your own home. Using the Moroccan Beldi-type lemon, these small, thin-skinned lemons convey a bright lemony flavour that is playfully tart and fruity. For centuries the preserved lemon has been a staple of Maghreb cuisine spreading across the north-western part of Africa along the Mediterranean Sea, consisting of the countries of Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia. Carefully prepared using traditional methods, these lemons are an essential pantry item for your tagines, fish and chicken dishes, and salads! Add a zesty edge to your dishes with ease. These preserved lemons are made from the freshest, all natural ingredients, manually picked, prepared and jarred.
Tasting Profile / Suggested Uses: Refreshingly zesty, these preserved lemons are a perfect match to sweet, floral and spicy notes in a variety of dishes. Dice them up and use them in salads or any quinoa, rice, or couscous dish. Use with lamb, grilled chicken, or baked fish in foil. A classic ingredient in tagines (especially with chicken and olives) and also in a variety of casseroles. We enjoy these preserved lemons because they are NOT as salty a many of the generic versions.
