Preserved lemon crush.
Sunshine in a bottle. This radiant concentrate adds brightness to any dish. Rhea preserves lemons, with chili and spices in kosher salt until the rind becomes tender and the sour flesh has mellowed into pure gold.
How to use it: Add a spoonful to salad dressings or marinades. Serve with carrots, a side of creamy yogurt, and a dusting of cumin. Use as a finish to pan seared fish. Combine with olive oil and drizzle over grilled chicken kabobs. Sprinkle on top fresh shaved fennel and smashed castelvetrano olives. Add to anything that needs a light touch.
Created by Abbye Churchill, Rhea exists as a space to share the delicacies and delights that she dreams up in her house in rural Maine. Each jar of preserves is made by hand in her kitchen. Each cloth is woven on her loom. Every flavor is conjured using ingredients she’s sourced or collected with care. Everything you’ll find here is meant to be used, devoured, ritualized, savored, and shared — little sensual offerings from our home to yours.
