Sweet Limes


1 lb

Less sour than regular limes, these sweet limes have a nice tangy flavor. Sweet limes are aromatic, juicy, and have low acidity creating a palatable, mild, and sweet flavor with subtle honey notes. They can be sliced and served as a garnish alongside main dishes, desserts, and appetizers, or they can be consumed raw as a snack. The limes can be juiced for use in dressings, marinades, and sauces, or mixed into flavored water, cocktails, limeade, and fruit juices. They can also be sliced and tossed into fruit salads, pasta, chopped for salsa, and preserved for pickling, chutneys, and marmalades. Sweet limes pair well with pomegranate, apples, banana, kiwi, pineapple, orange, beets, ginger, bell peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, bean sprouts, tortilla, pasta, rice, and meats such as poultry, beef, pork, and fish.

The limes will keep up to two weeks when stored at room temperature and up to one month when stored in the refrigerator.
