Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: Making & Using Preserved Lemons


with Deanna Figueira

Preserved lemon is an essential ingredient in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine.  In this class, we’ll learn how simply you can make your own preserved lemons and how it will change your flavors forever.  We’ll prepare several recipes highlighting the ingredient’s versatility – “Tagine” Chicken with Olives, Lemon Quinoa with Shaved Brussel Sprouts and Toasted Walnuts, and Lemon/Mint Feta Dip – and then taste Preserved Lemon Ice Cream (coconut milk).  Everyone will go home with her/his own preserved lemons (started). Please bring a pint-size jar.
