finalPreservedLemon.jpgWe are always looking for easy, simple ingredients to use at home during the hot summer months. That's why Gothamist loves to have a jar of preserved lemons on hand. After being cured in a salt mixture, the lemon rinds can be used as an intense, sweet accent to a tomato salad, couscous, or even a simple bowl of olives. Preserved lemons are also an excellent seasoning for grilling chicken or lamb this summer.

Fairway has a large jar of preserved lemons for $6.99, or rather than buying them, make your own.

Do you have any uses for preserved lemons to share?
