Dried Lime 60g

Category: ,

Dried whole limes are a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern and Persian cuisines, with a strong citrus flavour that is slightly sour and bitter. The drying process intensifies their taste, making them more pungent and concentrated compared to fresh limes. They also develop earthy and fermented notes, which contribute to their distinct flavour profile.
