We are adding the recipe to your Recipe Box.
This was added to your Recipe Box.
Place lemons (or mix of lemons and limes) in freezing compartment overnight. The next day scrub and slice them. Sprinkle with salt and leave in a colander to drain and soften. This can take several hours or longer depending on the weather. Arrange the slices in layers in a glass jar, sprinkling each layer with paprika. Cover completely with oil. They are ready in about a month when they are soft and a beautiful warm golden color. Store in a cool, dry place. For an alternative method of preserving lemons: Take as many lemons or limes as you wish to preserve. Stud each with 6 cloves. Pierce the skins with a skewer to save your thumbs. Place in a glass jar and cover completely with oil or white vinegar. Keep cool. They will be ready in 3-4 weeks.
