How to make it

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the lemons and return to the boil. Allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove the lemons and allow to dry and cool down slightly.
  • Cut each lemon lengthwise into quarters from the blossom end to within 1/2 an inch of the stem end, being careful to keep the lemon intact.
  • Place the vanilla bean in the jar. Be sure to use a wide-mouth jar with at least a capacity of 1 quart. Pack the lemons into the jar.
  • Combine the sugar and vodka in a pan. Cook over low heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Do not boil.
  • Pour the syrup over the lemons. If necessary, add more vodka to cover the lemons.
  • Seal the jar and refrigerate for at least 2 weeks; shaking the jar occasionally.
  • The lemons will keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 months.
  • Enjoy! :)

    So apart from making a very nice tasting liquid, what applications are there for the lemon itself? What texture does the final product have? Do you use the pulp, or only the peel like with savoury preserved lemons?
