Regarding Tunisia, Pliny the Elder wrote, Here under exceptionally tall palm trees grow olive trees, under the olive trees grow fig trees, under the fig trees grow pomegranate trees and below them vines. And under the vines cereals are sown, to be followed by legumes, then vegetables, all in the same year, and all feeding on the shade provided by another tree or plant. This idyllic setting (specifically Tebourba, Tunisia) is home to Les Moulins Mahjoub, a producer of plant- and grain-based regional delicacies. Their preserved lemons, one of the cornerstones of Maghreb cuisine, come two to a jar, alongside mild red peppers to add nuanced sweetness. Typically enjoyed as an ingredient in traditional tagines, they can also be used in potato or grain salads, pasta dishes, yogurt based dips, fish dishes, or anything else that you think could benefit from their complex and intense lemony flavor.
