Preserved Lemons or Limes

6 lemons or lemons and limes
salt
paprika
vegetable or light olive oil

Place lemons (or mix of lemons and limes) in freezing compartment
overnight. The next day scrub and slice them. Sprinkle with salt
and leave in a colander to drain and soften. This can take several
hours or longer depending on the weather. Arrange the slices in
layers in a glass jar, sprinkling each layer with paprika. Cover
completely with oil. They are ready in about a month when they are
soft and a beautiful warm golden color. Store in a cool, dry place.

For an alternative method of preserving lemons: Take as many lemons
or limes as you wish to preserve. Stud each with 6 cloves. Pierce
the skins with a skewer to save your thumbs. Place in a glass jar
and cover completely with oil or white vinegar. Keep cool. They
will be ready in 3-4 weeks.
