Lemons vs Limes? Limes - everytime.
Limes: bright green, fairly smooth skin, limes are a highly aromatic fruit. Three main types are available: Tahitian, which is the largest, with the most acidic flavour; Mexican, slightly smaller, very aromatic, and with a particularly bright green skin; and Key lime, which have a paler skin, a high juice content and a strong flavour. Like lemons, limes are high in vitamin C, and are a wonderful addition to Mexican, Indian, Latin American and South-East Asian cuisines.
Use to make Key lime pie; salsas and curries; marinades for raw fish; add a wedge to a classic gin and tonic or use to make cocktails like the margarita, caipirinha or mojito.... (no that was NOT too many alcoholic suggestions...! 😶
Sourced locally across the Shoalhaven, Far South Coast and a little from farmers in the Illawarra. They are grown under clear skies and fresh air; hot sunny Summers and frosty Winters.
Our farmers use permaculture principles and their sowing, weeding and harvesting is all done by hand, without the use of chemicals, pesticides or herbicides preferring green manure crops, compost and natural minerals for biological soil balancing.
