We love limes in all their different variations!
And guess what? Up here in the Territory we have a wide range of Lime Trees at our finger tips that not only grow up here but thrive!
The West Indian Lime is extravagantly aromatic, with a thin rind that is deliciously green; it's a small dainty fruit, tangy, juicy and Corona toppingly perfect!
The Kaffir Lime leaves are the most frequently used part of the plant fresh, dried or frozen! The leaves are widely used in Thai and Lao cuisine. The bumpy alien looking fruit can also be used in curries.
The Tahitian Lime is used fresh in a range of culinary purposes, particularly drinks, curries, cakes and desserts. Highly versatile and easy to use in just about everything!
The Finger Lime has been recently popularised as a gourmet bush-food! The globular juice vesicles have been likened to a ''lime caviar'' which can be used as a garnish. Marmalade and Pickles are also made from Finger Lime.
