Crazy Water Pickled Lemons
Who says the West can’t feast like the East? In 2002, exotic food became the new norm thanks to Diana Henry’s first book, Crazy Water Pickled Lemons: Enchanting Dishes from the Middle East, Mediterranean and North Africa.
The book was far ahead of its time, utilizing flavors and ingredients that were uncommon and hard to find. Lucky for us, Crazy Water Pickled Lemons is being re-released. It's been some time since 2002, so those rare ingredients are now much accessible. Saffron, dates, figs, flower water and petals, are just a few of the beautiful additions Henry likes to enhance her recipes with. Try the Cardamom-Baked Figs with Plums and Burnt Honey or the Roast Duck with Honey, Lavender and Thyme. Discover what the East is all about with Crazy Water Pickled Lemons, available now for $20.
