Welcome to the land of Salt!
After all the stresses of learning and working to perfect marmalades I was ready for the next challenge: Salt
Salt is something I have worked with in the past and immensely enjoyed! There is a world of opportunity. I got a little ambitious, as you will see.
|Lemons from a friends tree|
Yes, Lemons. Meyer Lemons. Wonderful sour and sweet, and sugary Lemons. People love to give me their excess from the garden because I don't tend to wast it. I went to a friend's house because she has a lemon bush and picked a bag. This picture is from after I used more than half of the lemons. LOTS OF LEMON!
|Salted lemons 3 ways|
I knew that I was going to do the Salted Lemons, just because I comfortable with past practices.
I made several jars of Salted Lemons, trying slightly different methods but realized I like and prefer a particular method. I don't really measure, just make sure I have plenty of salt. I like being able to make what I call "micro" batch. Doing with a little almost the same as what I can do with a lot. Plus I do tend to have small spaces so no room for much storage.
Like I said before, there are so many options it is hard to decide. Next....Sour Kraut, lemon salt, and salted eggs. (recipes are in the links)
