Preserved Lemon--where can I buy it?

Anyone know of a Moroccan market or specialty foods place that carries this?

    Cost Plus World Market has them, about 3 in a jar.

      I've made them before- it's really easy if you have the time, and you have plenty left over for other uses. I used something similar to this:

        I have purchased them at the olive bar at Whole Foods on Fairfax.

          Jons market in Glendale and most of the armenian/persian markets there usually have them.

            Of course if you have time you should make your own. You can get away with using them in about a week although your supposed to leave them for a month. Also I remember a 'Quick' recipe that could get you going in a day or two, as I recall you quarter them and utilize the freezer as well. Recipes are easily available. Of course in a pinch I buy them as well although it seems like a waste for something so nearly free, especially since many locals are getting their Meyer crops in now. Nicole's in South Pas. has them for about $5 for two.
