This batch was started last Friday, April 25th. Every Friday, we'll take a peek and see how the lemons are progressing in their transformation, and whether they need any special attention.
May 9th, end of Week Two: Rind is softening and losing whitish color. Topped up with more oil since lemons still tend to float during the week.
May 16th, end of Week Three: Rind is finally changing from white to a more opaque hue on its way to translucence. Didn't have to open the jar this week to top it up or push lemons back. Just a photo and back into the dark.
Only 2 more weeks to go!
May 23d, end of Week Four: Out for a portrait, then back in the dark!
Looks pretty much the same as it did last week.
Week Five: Preserved lemons are ready to use! Store in refrigerator after first use. Will keep in refrigerator up to a year. Top up with oil to keep lemons submerged.
