   Wolfert writes: “If you run out of preserved lemons,
   or decide on just a few day’s notice to cook a
   chicken, lamb, or fish dish with lemons and olives and
   need preserved lemons in a hurry, you can use this
   quick five-day method taught to me by a Moroccan
   diplomat’s wife. Lemons preserved this way will not
   keep, but are perfectly acceptable in an emergency.”
   
   With a razor blade, make 8 fine 2 vertical incisions
   around the peel of each lemon to be used. (Do not cut
   deeper than the membrane that protects the pulp.)
   Place the incised lemons in a stainless-steel saucepan
   with plenty of salt and water to cover and boil until
   the peels become very soft.  Place in a clean jar,
   covered with cooled cooking liquor, and leave to
   pickle for approximately 5 days.
