Strangely enough, the lime is one of the most popular citrus fruits, even though you wouldn’t just pop one in your mouth. But the tangy juice is the perfect way to enhance or add flavour. Limes are a little smaller than lemons, but have an even more intense flavour and more juice. The aromatic scent of the lime is immediately recognisable.
The distinctive flavour - tangy and green - means the lime is a loyal guest in cocktail bars. The subtle citrus flavour brings distinctive appeal to every drink. What's nice about the lime is that you can use the whole fruit. Not only the flesh (to enhance the flavour of many dishes) and the juice, also the skin. Zest the lime and add to your recipe.
Recipes with limes
You might naturally associate limes with drinks, such as a festive cocktail. They also taste terrific in a fresh smoothie. Add a citrus injection to risotto? Then try the lime.
Simply slice in half and squeeze to extract the juice. EAT ME has also developed a handy lime sprayer that does the work for you. Do you plan to use the zest for extra flavour? Avoid the white part, which is a little too bitter.
