Preserved lemon is a tradition of Moroccan cooking, a balance of salt and tart. Spoonable in one step, If & When Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste adds a level of complexity and depth of flavor that lemon and salt alone, cannot.

With five ingredients (no garlic), the Moroccan blend is all-things-to-all-dishes: a rub for raw meat, fish and vegetables; an essential baking ingredient and a cocktail mixer that moonlights as a cheese pairing.


This Moroccan blend accents many a dish (or cocktail) with a lemony flavor laced with peppercorn, Bay leaf, allspice and a hint of cinnamon. It's not sweet or savory, it's something else - your kitchen secret weapon.

- Spread: Toast, sandwiches and wraps.
- Mix: Salad dressings, marinades and cocktails.
- Marinate/Rub: Meats, poultry, fish and vegetables before cooking.


Two-to-three spoonfuls are plenty to marinate and roast a whole chicken.

One spoonful makes a margarita sing.

For a milder flavor, measure with a teaspoon or measure to taste.

The longer the Meyer lemon paste stir on raw meat, fish or vegetables, the stronger the flavor. Use less, make more.

Refrigerate after opening recommended. Shelf stable 2 years. Gluten- and dairy-free. No preservatives. Vegan-friendly.
