Nice way to preserve oranges, limes and lemons


It feels like Im getting a flu. Nothing I really want or do anything about it. Do you have any tips how to cure flu , so please tell me, do I want to know.
Now of course Citrus cheap. Anyway here where I live. So I take the opportunity to add some for future use.
Picked Lemon is common in the Moroccan and North African cuisines.
Picked Lime, I love everything with, color, taste , size! Yes it’s perfect. So I usually put it with. Transforms the most common fishing rights to any outstanding resturant food.
Picked  Orange is a little more unusual, but is fantastic for example chicken. The hot, salty and sweet together is amazing!
Also want to remind about the Contest here on the blog! An absolutely fantastic price at stake !
Picked Citrus fruits
3 sliced ​​lime , or 2 sliced ​​lemon or 2 sliced ​​oranges
100 ml coarse salt
100-150 mL boiling water
1 chili
1 piece of cinnamon stick
Add fruit , salt and spices in a can that is exactly the right size. Because you do not want any air between the liquid and the lid. Turn on the water only up tilll the edge of the can. Put the lid . Shake . Let stand at room temperature for about 1 week. Ready to be served.

  1. Bed rest, vitamin C, and a lot of water will do the trick 🙂

    This sounds nice and easy to do! I might just give this a whirl.
    I always swear by hot whiskey, lemon and honey for a cold. I’ve only had flu proper once – it completely knocked me for six – far worse than any cold. Hope you feel better very soon.

      Thanks I hope your recipe I will feel better soon. 🙂

    This is great – and looks beautiful! Feel better – I swear by kombucha for all illnesses!

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      Thanks yes is also a nice decoration as well. 🙂 I have to try kombucha, never heard of it before so I had to look it up. 🙂

    I know when i have flu, there’s nothing that can stop it. i just go to the doctor to get days off and get antibiotics and rest. I often have sinus issues and have to wait it out to see if it’s sinus or flu coming as the symptoms are the same

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      Yes flu is a virus so antibiotics doesnt help but with rest and good healthy food it can help. 🙂 Thanks you care 🙂

  5. Take Elderberry. It is a syrup that you can buy at a health food store. It is recommended to take 1 tablespoon 2 times a day to boost your immune system but if you start getting sick, take 1 tablespoon every hour. It tastes good and you will feel the difference.

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      That was totally a new thing, Elderberry. 🙂 I have to try to find it here, never hear of the berries used, only the flowers for lemonad. Sounds very healthy and helpfull. 🙂

      1. I have a recipe for Elderberry syrup on the website, it really helps if you have influenza = the flu. Old remedy my grandma used and new scientific studies show results. Thanks for the like by the way. N.

    Ytterligare en bra ide nu när citrusen är billig =)

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      Ja visst är det 🙂 Det blir ju så gott att ha i maten sen också. Samt pryder sin plats på arbetsbänken. 😉

      1. Karoleen says:

        Ja, det är onekligen väldigt vackert!

      2. Dinner Bank says:

        Tack vad snällt av dig att säga 🙂

    This week’s Reblog is from Maria at DINNER BANK. I enjoy many food blogs and what makes Dinner Bank special for me are three things. First, there is a lot of food going on here, absolutely prolific! Second, the food is both homey and exotic. I’m learning quite a bit about international cuisine. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, is Maria herself. While her blog has close to 800 followers, she manages to reply to comments and makes everyone feel welcome. Thank you for that! While I could have chosen many Dinner Bank posts to reblog, I chose this one because I think the picture of preserved citrus is gorgeous and it’s also a simple tip, which makes me want to go out and preserve the oranges that are overflowing on my trees! Also, Maria happens to be running her first ever contest so if you enjoy participating in contests, check it out. But please don’t think I’m reblogging because of the contest, from which I’ve asked to remain ineligible. I’m reblogging to thank Maria for sharing her amazing passion for home cooking and to encourage others to enjoy this prize of a blog. Happy Monday to all and thanks, always, for reading.

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      Thank you so very much for your lovely and kind word. 🙂 They mean really a lot to me. 🙂 I just want to share my passion for food and happy for everyone who enjoys it. 🙂

      1. Angie Mc says:

        If only we could share our home cooked food with each other! Who knows, maybe some day we’ll actually be able to taste the food we share online 🙂 Have a great week, Maria.

      2. Dinner Bank says:

        That would be fantastic! 🙂 I have done lots of traveling and then discover local food and dishes as you might have guess… But never been to your side of the world. Would be fantastic. Wish there was a way at least to change food with each others 🙂 Take care and greetings to your lovely family 🙂
