What are Moroccan Preserved Lemons?
Moroccan preserved lemons are a staple of Moroccan and sometimes other African cuisine. They’re used as flavoring in tagines, special stews slow cooked in a vessel with a conical lid, and also may be added to soups or other dishes to provide wonderful lemon flavor. In markets in Morocco, you may be able to buy Moroccan preserved lemons individually. Normally, you have to look for them in International markets or specialty foods stores to get them in the US, or you can order them on the Internet. Most people suggest it’s more cost effective, and quite simple to make your own batch of Moroccan preserved lemons.
