Sweet and tangy homemade lemon pickle recipe from lemon peels –
Lemon, the word itself is enough to bring tangy flavor to the mouth, yes na ? If you say no then do one thing imagine yourself chewing a pulpy lemon half, Tangy na now ? Obviously, yes and my dog loves munching on these lemon skins and then jumping in joy. Recently I got some fresh handpicked lemons from an organic farm yard and thought to make the lemon pickle. The pickle is healthy and homemade, it boast immunity of a person if eaten regularly with meals and a good source of Vitamin B12.
The lemons were fresh, aromatic and big in size. I took out the lemon juice and stored it in some glass bottle because in the season lemons don’t last long, they get rotten easily due to cold weather. Looking at the aromatic leftovers peelings of lemon, I didn’t had the heart to throw these all, so I decided why not use the grandmother homemade lemon pickle recipe and enjoy the yummy treat in winters. It is a multiple lemon pickle recipe and also a healthy option pickle in winters to avoid bad throat and cold.
