Use these preserves in this week’s risotto, or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.
6 Meyer lemons
⅓ cup kosher salt
⅔ cup fresh Meyer lemon juice
1. Scrub lemons and dry well. Quarter lemons lengthwise.
2. Toss the lemon wedges with the salt in a bowl and transfer to a sterile 4-cup glass jar. Use a wooden spoon to press the lemons to fit. Add lemon juice and any remaining salt that might be left in the bowl. Seal jar tightly and shake to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 3 days, shaking jar each day. Transfer to the refrigerator for 3 weeks or until rinds are soft. Rinse before using.
