I read a lot about preserved lemons (TLDR: quarter them, and keep them in a mix of lemon juice and salted/brined water for 10-30 days), and I'm trying it with limes. But...
Two things concern me about my current mixture:
- The lime skin, which was a nice vibrant green, is turning a dark greenish (almost brown) colour
- In some places, the colour leeched off entirely and it's white (like the inside of the rind
Am I doing this right, or is this starting to rot?
I brined them in a combination of salt, water, and lemon juice for about three or four days prior to noticing this. Now (another four days later), they're even more dull-coloured.
(I don't have a picture, sorry. On closer inspection, the dark green/brown looks like it's fading.)
