RECIPE: Boiling lemons for pickling
I was watching an old Indian movie last night. A documentary. And one woman was boiling lemons (perhaps limes) to use the liquid to make pickles. I never did figure out what she was pickling but she ground onion seed, garlic and red peppers and made a paste using the juice of the boiled lemons or perhaps the water in which the lemons were boiled.
I am just curious. Have you ever heard of this procedure?
