Meatballs with Preserved Lemon, cookbooks & family plans — 9 Comments

  1. These meatballs seem like a perfect counterpoint to the cold front that just rolled into the high desert here.

  2. Evidently, I don’t either. I tried unsuccessfully to find them after your last recipe with them, but no luck. 🙁

  3. Sounds delicious! I love collecting cookbooks too. I fear I may soon run out of room for them.
    Did you enjoy the meatballs? I’m not sure I would keep the lemon slivers that large as I find preserved lemon a bit overpowering. Curious to hear your thoughts.

  4. Dan, they do very well against cold weather….

    deebar, well…. you can make your own preserved lemons, …. or add a half of a fresh lemon with a bit of sugar to offset,, maybe 1 tsp or so.

    nightsmusic, make some – they keep a really long time… Dan gave us the link = thanks Dan!

    Kate – you’ll come, right?

    dishinthekitchen, I love the preserved lemon so that’s okay for me,,,but you could sliver them a bit thinner – same flavor for the meatballs.

  5. I have made these many times, they are great and freeze really well! Delicious with bulgur. Do not double unless you are using 2 large pots as the meatballs will likely stick together.
