    Yeah that wax is a problem. The preserved lemons I made sat unused for a couple of years (they looked so pretty on the shelf!) and when I tossed them out you could have made lemon scented candles with the liquid inside the bottle.

    It really doesn’t make you want to use them, does it! These (unwaxed) lemons look much nicer though and it’s very nice to be able to use up spare lemons from the garden in the last house too.
