Our fermented lemons shine like the sun and their taste is very special! After over a month of fermentation, lemons lose their bitterness and gain their characteristic citrus and complex tartness. In Northern Africa, they are used as a condiment, for example, to flavor stews in Moroccan cuisine. They can also be used to flavor butter, mixed with olives as an appetizer, to make mayonnaise, to aromatize rice, to make risotto, or to add to any stew. The flesh, the skin, and the liquid are all delicious. Highly-recommended extra tip: add some of the pulp to your hummus, and then some of the lemon skin diced on top.

Roots Radicals fermented lemons are alive. This means that you will be taking with you a probiotic healthy product that, with time, will continue to evolve. Some important things you need to know to take proper care of them are: ⁠

  1. Make sure they are always submerged. ⁠
  2. If you run out of liquid just add more water or lemon juice.⁠
  3. Place them in your fridge, where the fermentation will be slower.
  4. If you see any white coming up, this is because they have been exposed to oxygen, but it is harmless yeast called Kahm. You can just skim it off, wash your lemons and continue to use them.
