  1. Sneha like this quick lemon pickle recipe. I usually allow the lemon pieces to marinate in lemon juice and salt till it becomes soft. This usually takes a few weeks. Will give this steamed version a try.

  2. What a great use for lime peels...can't wait to try this!

  3. That looks delicious. I will have to try this soon.

  4. I never would have thought to pickle lime peels! So creative!

  5. Wow I bring organic lemons and at times have so many peels that I wonder what to do. This looks like an interesting and easy recipe to try soon.
