Dried Sliced Lime 60g

Category: ,

A common ingredient used in Middle Eastern, Persian, and Indian cuisine. It is made by boiling fresh limes in salt water and then sun-drying them until they become hard and black. Dried lime adds a unique tangy and citrusy flavour to dishes and is often used to impart a slightly sour taste. Infuse sauces with citrus flavours, add to a tagine to bring out the flavour or grind in a spice mill to create meat and fish rubs, tabbouleh and quinoa salads.

Some uses and recipe ideas for dried sliced lime:
  1. Flavouring Soups and Stews: Dried lime slices can be added to soups and stews during cooking to infuse them with a tart, zesty flavour. They work particularly well in lentil soups, vegetable stews, and meat-based dishes.
  2. Rice and Pilaf: When cooking rice or pilaf, add a few dried lime slices to the pot for a tangy twist. The dried lime will permeate the grains, giving them a delightful citrus aroma and taste.
  3. Marinades and Rubs: Crushed or powdered dried lime can be used as an ingredient in marinades and spice rubs for meats, poultry, and seafood. It adds a bright, acidic flavour that complements grilled or roasted dishes.
  4. Pickling and Preserving: Dried lime can be used in pickling brines to add a distinctive sourness to pickled vegetables or fruits. It also works well when preserving lemons, giving them a unique flavour profile.
  5. Seasoning Blends: Grind dried lime slices into a powder and combine them with other spices like cumin, coriander, and chilli powder to create flavourful seasoning blends for meats, vegetables, or dips.
  6. Tea and Infusions: Steep dried lime slices in hot water to make a refreshing and aromatic lime-infused tea. You can also add them to herbal tea blends for a zingy twist.
  7. Salad Dressings and Sauces: Finely chop or grind dried lime and incorporate it into salad dressings, sauces, or vinaigrettes for a tangy, citrusy element.
  8. Roasted Vegetables: Toss dried lime slices with roasted vegetables like carrots, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts before cooking to add a bright, zesty flavor to the dish.
  9. Baking: Incorporate dried lime zest or powder into your baking recipes for a citrusy kick. It works well in cakes, cookies, and breads.
