  3. In a baking dish just large enough to hold the lemons, toss the lemons with the salt and place in one single layer.
  4. Pour enough of the lemon juice over them to just cover them.
  5. Bake covered, stirring occasionally, for 3 hours.
  6. Let the lemons cool and transfer them with their brine to an airtight container. Keep lemons covered and chilled indefinitely.
