The instruction how to make Mediterranean pickled lemons with paprika

  1. Cut the lemons into 5mm-thick slices and place in a single layer on a wire rack over a tray. Sprinkle each slice generously with the salt. Place in the freezer for 2 hours or until frozen.
  2. Remove the lemons from the freezer and set aside at room temperature for 12 hours to draw out the moisture.
  3. Preheat oven to 100u00b0C. Wash a 250ml (1-cup) jar well and then rinse. Place upside down in the oven for 5 minutes or until completely dry.
  4. Remove jar from oven. Layer the lemon slices in the jar, sprinkling with a little paprika after each layer. Fill the jar with olive oil, making sure the lemons are completely covered.
  5. Seal the jar and set aside at room temperature for 3-4 weeks to mature - the lemon rind will become soft and the flavours will mellow.
