Vegan MoFo Day 19: Lemon Pickle (for Kittee)

Kittee is an avatar from the exalted cosmic dimension of Vegan, bringing kitchen wisdom to the rest of us. When she recently blogged about Indian lemon pickle, I decided I had to make some. Besides, pickles are this weeks's DIY challenge at the PPK Forums. I used the recipe from Dakshin, which she suggested - easy and scrumptious (and SPICY!).

dang, an avatar! i usually cut the salt way down in that recipe. how'd it come out for you?? i wish i had some too, organic lemons have seemed scarce this summer.

It's pretty salty, but not over the top for me. I did have a lot of liquid from boiling the lemons (maybe more liquid than the recipe intended) which diluted it. The taste is great! Do they change/improve with time?

Pickles intimidate me. I checked out Putting Food By from the library a couple of weeks ago and I've been meaning to try something, but I'm not sure where to start. The huge bag of mixed peppers I picked up for $1 at the farmers market yesterday might be my first victims.
