Msir North African Pickled Lemon Seasoning

Msir or pickled lemon is a popular North African recipe. Dry salting is a traditional method for preserving used for pickling many vegetables and fruits including lemons.



Fresh lemons are washed, sliced covered in salt for 24 hours, then drained and mixed with spices to cook in Tajines. Making Msir is easy and adds a unique flavor to meals. Be careful, just a small amount of the seasoning goes a long way.
