Simply mix chopped preserved lemons with enough honey to balance out the bitterness. Gently mix in plain yogurt until you have a homogenous mixture. You can add a pinch of turmeric for color if you wish. Season with salt and pepper. Dollop on your lovely little latkes and let the holiday feasting begin!
