Preserved Lemons:

  • Wonderful Seedless Lemons (amount depends on the size of your jar)
  • Kosher salt (amount will vary)


  • 1 baguette
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 wheel of Brie cheese
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • Honey, for drizzling


  1. For the preserved lemons: The number of Wonderful Seedless Lemons you need will depend on the size of the mason jar you use. The lemons should fit snugly in the jar.
  2. Wash the lemons and cut them into quarters, but do not slice all the way through at the bottom, so that the lemon quarters remain attached.
  3. Gently pull apart the lemon segments, without breaking them apart, and sprinkle them with the salt. Add a layer of salt to the bottom of the jar, about 2 cm thick.
  4. Add the lemons to the jar and push down so that juice accumulates at the bottom. Fully submerge the lemons in the lemon juice.
  5. Set the jar aside for 2 to 3 weeks, shaking it a few times a week, and store it in the fridge once opened.
  6. For the crostini: Slice a baguette into 3/4" pieces and brush them with olive oil. Top each piece of baguette with a slice of Brie, and toast until the bread has browned and the cheese is melted.
  7. In the meantime, remove 1 preserved lemon from the jar, rinse it, and chop it finely.
  8. Place about 1 teaspoon of preserved lemon on each piece of toast and top it with thyme and a drizzle of honey.
