Drinks mixed with salted lemons are good for you if you have a sore throat, you lost your voice or when you frequently feel thirsty.

Lemon Preparation:
10 pieces of lemons: 1 pound of salt;
1) Wash and dry the lemons;
2) pan fry salt until it is lightly brown, cool salt on the side;
3) clean and dry a glassware (wide opening jar with lid) that is large enough to house the lemons and salt;
4) put lemons in the glassware, add salt on top;
5) seal the glassware opening with plastic wraps, then cove it with lid. Shake well, and let them sit for 3 or more weeks. The longer, the better. (During the first 2 weeks, shake jar every 2 days.)
Do not use oily utensils to clean lemons or to hold salt. Do not use lids made of metal. Do not dispose juice from the container.
