Ingredients Directions
  1. In order to preserve their freshness, store esrogs in a container filled with cold water until you are ready to cook them.
  2. Slice the esrogs very thinly into rounds, with the peel still on, and remove all the seeds.
  3. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil.
  4. Change the water and bring to a boil again. Do this about 6 times to reduce the esrogs' bitterness.
  5. At the last boiling of the esrog, add the quince apple and cook until soft.
  6. Add lemon juice and sugar substitute to taste.
