Incorrect sttep makes the lemons moldy
While this recipe is very similar to other recipes for preserving lemons, the key mistake is that they ask you to leave them on the counter for 10 days rather than refrigerate them. I followed the directions to the letter; sitting the jar on the counter for 10 days makes the lemons moldy. You can't actually SEE mold, but I can absolutely taste it. If I tried this recipe again, I would not set them on the counter; I'd refrigerate them.
