Wolfert writes: "If you run out of preserved lemons, or decide on just
a few day's notice to cook a chicken, lamb, or fish dish with lemons
and olives and need preserved lemons in a hurry, you can use this
quick five-day method taught to me by a Moroccan diplomat's wife.
Lemons preserved this way will not keep, but are perfectly acceptable
in an emergency." With a razor blade, make 8 fine 2" vertical
incisions around the peel of each lemon to be used. (Do not cut deeper
than the membrane that protects the pulp.) Place the incised lemons
in a stainless-steel saucepan with plenty of salt and water to cover
and boil until the peels become very soft. Place in a clean jar,
covered with cooled cooking liquor, and leave to pickle for
approximately 5 days. From Couscous and Other Good Food from Morocco
