The Bay Area is fortunate to have Meyer lemons, a delicate and aromatic citrus fruit that’s sweeter than a typical lemon and insanely floral.  In this workshop, participants received hands-on instruction from Dafna Kory of INNA jam on how to preserve meyer lemons two very different ways: one sweet, the other savory.

For the sweet, Dafna taught participants how to use a unique process to craft a meyer lemon jam that’s fresh-tasting, not-too-sweet, and spreadable. For the savory, participants learned a fresh take on the traditional Moroccan preserved lemons, using less salt, more juice, and minimal processing.  Best of all: everyone went home with two jars of their newly preserved lemons, along with recipes and tips to continue preserving at home!
