Gold nuggets

Just found a bowl of salted lime (and lemon skins) in the cupboard.
I knew that they were there, it just took some months to get around to washing them (in vinegar) and then packing them into jars with olive oil.
They had been in rock salt for 8 months.
When I scooped them out they were a nice golden colour and the skins was bubbled by the salt; and very dry.
Now they're in the cupboard and will last for years.
Ideal on meat; they just melt; or in salads and couscous.

A simple pleasure of life; and from the garden.
