    Yes we make them all the time, quarter them, put in mason jar, add salt and most important take the extra lemons and squeze the juice to fill up mason jar, shake and put in fridge and the're ready in a couple of weeks.

      Whole Foods carries them 'fresh' in their olive bar area.

        I am not sure about moroccan style but there are a wide variety of lemon pickles you can get from Indian groceries. I have a ton of summer lemons, I am going to try to make some pickles. I saw the chow video to the right, but their recipe seems very plain. What do the Moroccan ones taste like?

          Jons Market on Laurel Canyon Blvd and Magnolia (or is it Burbank Blvd?) in North Hollywood has it. That's not too far from 90068.

            make yer own, a whole lot cheaper. Meyers should be easy for you to find right now. quarter em and toss in a mason jar with kosher salt, let em sit.

              I concur, make your own. It takes about 2 weeks minimum. Paula Wolfert's book has the recipe.

                I'm sure any middle eastern market in your area would carry them. I know I've seen them in my area markets.
