you need about 6 lemons. Wash them well under water and dry. cut into quarters. Have some jars with good fitting lids and boil them in water to sterilize them. Let them cool. Then put your lemons, with about 1/3 cup of good sea salt and about a tablespoon of fine salt into a bowl and mix well. The stuff the quarters into the jars as tightly as you can put the remaining salt and then fill the jar completely to the top with water (you won't need too much). tighten the lids and leave them in a dark cupboard for 4 to 6 weeks before using. Make sure you lable the jars with the date so you remember when they were bottled. When using scrape away the pith and use the skin only.
