homemade lemon pickle 🍋
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
1 level teaspoon turmeric
¼ of a fresh red chilli
1 small dried chilli
a small pinch of salt
How to do it:
- Cut the lemon into eighths, then de-seed and finely slice. Finely slice the red chilli quarter.
- Put a small pan on to a medium to high heat.
- Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and the mustard seeds, turmeric and the sliced chilli.
- Crumble in the dried chilli. When everything starts to sizzle, add the sliced lemon and a pinch of salt. Count to ten, (although I say cook for a minute or the lemon rind is hard) then take off the heat and put in a bowl to cool.
