It’s been a long time since my last post! I wanted to concentrate on my own artistic work recently and together with winter-sicknesses period and lack of computer at home it generated much longer break than I planned.
Today I want to share with you first watercolor illustration in a new series I’m working on – my favourite recipes. Print is available in my Etsy shop.
Here is the recipe – it’s really easy and delicious but you have to wait for 2-3 weeks until they are ready.
LEMON PICKLES (circa 1l jar)
* 5 lemons
* olive oil (extra virgine)
* a few cloves of garlic
* a few parsley leaves
* red chili pepper
Wash the lemons carefully in warm water. Slice them on circa 5 mm (0.2 inch) pieces. Put the lemons on a plate in layers.Sprinkle each layer with salt generously. Put away for 24 hours.
Towel dry the lemons. Put into a jar. Stick slices of chili, garlic and parsley leaves. Cover with olive oil entirely. Tilt the jar gently to let the air bubbles go.
Wait for 2-3 weeks.
When all lemons are eaten you can use the oil for salad dressings or rosting meet.
