These lemon slices are cured in salt and sugar, creating a very interesting and versatile preserve. Try to find as thin-skinned lemons as possible, and standard Eureka lemon will work better than the much sweeter Meyer lemons. This technique is from chef Thomas Keller.
Cut the lemons into 1/8-inch thick slices and pick out any seeds from the lemon slices.
Mix the salt and sugar together. Cover the bottom of a small glass container with a layer of the salt/sugar. Top with one layer of the sliced lemons, and cover with a layer of salt/sugar mixture. Repeat until all the lemon slices are covered.
Seal the container and let stand at room temperature for 3 days. The mixture can then be stored in a Mason jar and refrigerated until needed. It will keep for several months, but you'll likely use it well before then.
