Transfer to a large bowl and add the cayenne, mace, nutmeg, carom seeds, red pepper flakes, asafetida, ginger and salt. Add the reserved lemon juice and mix well. Add the lemon wedges and mix, pressing the spice mixture onto the flesh of the lemons.

Step 4Pack the lemons into 1 clean (1-quart) jar and 1 clean (1-pint) jar. Cap the jars and set in a sunny window for 5 weeks, turning the jars up and down several times, 3 to 4 times a day. Let the pickles age at least another month before eating. Refrigerate after opening.
