Description

Villa Jerada’s preserved lemons are simply made with Beldi lemons, salt and time, just like the Moroccan culinary tradition. With bright citrus, umami depth and light saltiness, these lemons add a flavorful punch to braises, tagines and dressings. They are packed whole but tender enough to slice easily and use in a variety of dishes. Besides their complex flavor, we also love them for their long shelf stability. It’s no wonder they are popular in North African and Middle Eastern cuisine, and even used medicinally in China and Vietnam.

Lemons (Beldi), water, salt, citric acid, ascorbic acid.

How to use

Traditionally, preserved lemon is added to Moroccan stews to sharpen spices and cut through rich flavors. Or it can be added to pilafs or bean dishes–especially good with lentils–as the lemon’s briny, piquant bite helps brighten up starchy grains. Finely dice the outer skin and add to braises, stews, meat dishes and tagines, like this Lemon-Saffron Chicken (Tangia) or thisMoroccan Meatball Tagine with Green Olives and Lemon. Or, mash the inner flesh for dressings, vinaigrettes and marinades.​
