Pickled lemon in LA?

I recently traveled to Morocco for vacation, and of course I enjoyed the magnificent food there. I took a cooking class, and learned to cook some tagines. One of the ingredients in a lot of Moroccan cooking is pickled lemon. I've started making my own, but the process takes two months. And I can't wait that long to start cooking some Moroccan dishes.

Does anyone know any place in L.A. where one can purchase pickled lemons?

  1. Is this the same as Preserved Lemons? If so then Surfas (and probably a lot of other stores like Whole Foods) has them in stock.

    1. You can get them at any middle eastern market. They may be called preserved lemons instead of pickled.

      1. Whole Foods for sure, Surfas sometimes, and it would be worth checking Super King and Jons.

        1. There is a fast version recipe that can be done in a couple of days.

          But, I saw them this afternoon at Cheesestore of Silver lake.

          1. Williams Sonoma might even sell a small jar but you pay the price. Try the quick method for making preserved lemons yourself at home.
