6 medium lemons, preferably thin skinned and seedless
2 onions, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1⁄2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
3 fresh bay leaves
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
1 teaspoon sea salt
Cut the ends off the lemons and discard. Thinly slice the lemons and remove any pips.
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Simmer gently for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the mixture is thick and glossy. Remove from the heat and cool. Spoon into sterilised jars, seal and label. Makes about 3 cups.
