Why, oh why, did my *preserved lemons* end up tasting like turpentine?

And I'm not being hyperbolic....it actually TASTES LIKE TURPENTINE.
I could probably strip lacquer off with this stuff.
[All I did was put cleaned lemons cut almost thru into quarters in a quart jar, sprinkled heavily with kosher salt and added lemon juice to cover. Kept it in the refrigerator.]
Man, I would have DIED if I lived in a time where I had to preserve my own food.
Jesus saves. Buddha recycles.

- Marilyn, did you have someone else taste the *preserved lemons* and did they taste off to him/her? - Sylvia - 12:41pm on 07/13/15
- oh, that's a really good point, Sylvia. And no...I didn't even think to subject Larry to that. - MarilynFL - 12:55pm on 07/13/15

- I know you "preserve" the whole lemon, but I've only seen the rind called for in - Charley - 4:52pm on 07/13/15
