3. Stir in couscous. Cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed. Remove bay leaves. Fluff couscous with fork. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired.Test Kitchen Tip: Preserved Lemons can be easily made at home. They can also be purchased in specialty food stores and Middle Eastern markets.
