Ingredients

  • four cups of warm water
  • two tablespoons of salt (she used Redmond’s real salt)
  • organic lemons
  • jar with lid and shoulder

 

 

Instructions

Step 1:

In a container, add four cups of warm water and two tablespoons of salt. The warm water will help the salt dissolve a little bit faster. Mix until well combined using a spoon.

Step 2:

Thoroughly wash the lemons. You can use hot soapy water to wash them. Make sure to remove any dirt on the skin, then rinse them with water. After that, place them in the jar and pack them well. The shoulders of the jar will make sure that they are submerged beneath the liquid line.

Step 3:

Pour the salt water brine into the jar. Make sure the lemons are completely submerged. Place the lid on and let it ferment at room temperature for a couple of days, then transfer to cold storage or refrigerator. If you have a room that doesn’t get very warm ideally at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit or colder, store it there.
