Product description

Limes Dried Whole are limes picked at their ripest and dried to lock in maximum flavour and aroma. Dried limes are light-tan to brown in colour and are strongly flavoured. They taste sour and citrusy like a lime but they also taste earthy and somewhat smoky and lack the sweetness of fresh limes. Because they are preserved they also have a slightly bitter, fermented flavour, but the bitter accents are mainly concentrated in the lime's outer skin and seeds. These are commonly used in Middle Eastern Cooking to counteract yet compliment the warm spices used in Middle Eastern dishes.

Culinary Notes:

Due to their tangy zesty flavour they work perfectly in fish and chicken dishes as well as with many vegetable types. Simply puncture the outer skin of the lime with a skewer or fork and leave to simmer in the pot during cooking. The Limes can also be ground up into  a fine powder and added to any spice mix for a zesty kick. Or placed whole in the cavity of poultry being roasted. Add a little kick to our Lebanese Baharat by adding these in with your dish.
