About this recipe

This riff on preserved lemons uses the Japanese method of pickling food by burying it in miso. The salt and umami impart a deeply sweet-sour-savory flavor to the citrus, making it a potent addition to a variety of dishes.

The Benefits

Limes are packed with vitamin C and other antioxidants, and miso is high in protein, probiotics, and many beneficial enzymes that can aid digestion and boost immunity.

Equipment: You’ll need a wide-mouth pint jar or similar glass container with a lid and a weight that fits the jar.
