Urtatim's recipe reminded me:
Last spring (after my tagine inquiry), I made up a few, small jars of salted lemons - just lemons packed with salt, nothing else added. Then I put them aside and forgot about them. They've been sitting at room temperature on a shelf in my kitchen four about four months now.
I did not process them in a water bath or do anything else to them. Are they still safe to eat, or should I pitch them? They have not changed color, nor have the lids swollen nor is there any seepage. Logic says salt+citric acid = ok, but paranoia says don't use them.
Any canning experts out there? I only know about canning things with sugar.
Get back to school stuff for them and cashback for you.
