How to Make Lemon Catsup

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll the lemons under your palm to increase juice. Grate zest off the lemons and squeeze juice into a pitcher, removing all seeds.

Boil all together for 30 minutes; transfer to glass jar with a lid. Paste a band of strong white paper around the lower part of the lid. Set in a dry cool place and leave it undisturbed for 3 months.
