If & When Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste was born of the idea that preserved lemon, a beloved tradition of Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisine, deserves a prominent place in the kitchen pantry. Fresh lemon enhances almost everything. Preserved Meyer lemon is the umami of everyday foods - a shortcut to brighter flavors in every spoonful - when added to raw meat and fish before grilling, vegetables before roasting and desserts before baking. If & When is a natural, preservative-free base for soups, salad dressings, marinades...even cocktails.
