I made these over 40 days ago now and opened them tonight for a recipe. I'm thrilled with them as it's the first time I've ever made them myself (my son often makes them for me). They were really easy to make and my big jar full should last ages. It's so much cheaper than buying them and has been well worth the wait to open them. Shall post a photo soon.
Preserved lemons are wonderful! Meyer lemons make the best preserved lemons. If you have a Whole Foods or other specialty market where you live, they are in season, so stock up and preserve! Great recipe. Easier than the one I did previously on Epicurious.com (with just as good results).
I just started this process. I have never tried this before, but have seen this recipe by the recipe author and have meaning to try it for years. Having gotten the chance, I now have to wait the time, and hopefully 40 days will go quickly. :) I used my sterilized 1 quart canning jars, and it is beautiful. I will be making more, as I think for XMAS this will make a unique and wonderful gift. Thanks again, floWer for your delightful, and wonderful recipes!

Just put them down today. I'll be back in 40 or so to let you all know how it turns out. I have been eyeballing a bunch of recipes that need these and I haven't found anywhere in Utah that has them. Thanks for the great recipe!
Work in progress, I'll be looking for ways to use these from 29 March 09! Easy to do, and attractive in their jar, I had large lemons and could only fit 4 in my jar, but they're very attractive on the shelf, its worth doing it for that alone! Looking forward to cooking with these!
It's so easy!!! Why haven't I made these before? I can't attest to the taste as they're still 'cooking' and I can't imagine the taste of salty lemons. One thing to keep in mind, if you have large lemons, use a wide mouthed jar!! Made for Aussie Swap 11/08. Back in 40 days, lol.
