  • About

A favourite ingredient of and companion to lamb and chicken dishes in North Africa. Also eaten with salad and eggs, and in its mildest form with fish, when the lemons or lemon slices have been preserved with oil.

Store all the pickles for 3–4 weeks in a cool, dark place, before you open them. Make sure that the fruit remains covered with liquid.
