I'm on a roll now! I went to the farmer's market yesterday and found a basket of big, gorgeous, lemons- three for a dollar- calling my name. I had no idea what to make of them, but I knew they were too good to pass up. On the way home I imagined lemon roasted chicken, pasta primavera with lemon, lemon dahl.. I knew I had to get these lemons into a jar before they ended up in a dish. So I chunked and tossed them with peppercorns, cinnamon bark, cloves, coriander seed, bay leaves and a good dose of salt, shoved them in a jar, topped off with good olive oil and sealed immediately. The jars a so darn pretty I might just use them as a decoration while they cure for the next two months.
