Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the brine and pulp from Carley’s Organic Preserved Lemons?

Many recipes call for only the preserved lemon rind. However, we’re sure you don’t want to let all that delicious lemony goodness from your jar of Carley’s Organic Preserved Lemons go to waste. Here are a few ideas of what you can do with the juicy pulp and salty-citrus brine…

  • Use the brine and pulp in your homemade cultured cashew cheese to add a delicious zesty tang and aid with the fermentation. 
  • Whisk up the brine with fresh lemon juice and olive oil for a tangy salad dressing. 
  • Stir a spoonful of brine into hot grains to add a bright citrusy lift. 
  • Whizz the pulp and brine into your favourite homemade dips like hummus, tapenade and guacamole. 

Just remember that preserved lemon brine is very salty so you may not need to add as much salt as usual to your recipe.
