These petite, organic Tunisian lemons are known for their intensity and concentrated citrus flavor. Preserved whole, a mild red pepper is added to the jar to create an additional layer of flavor. No other ingredient, apart from Harissa, exemplifies Tunisian cooking as well as preserved lemons.
Cut the lemons into thin, small slices and use them to accompany grilled or baked fish, stews, or rice. Or, substitute fresh lemons with these in the popular Mediterranean dish of chicken, olives, and lemons. Both the rind and the pith can be utilized.
