Culinary use  
Finger Limes contain gorgeous juicy pearls of flesh and are often referred to as Finger Lime Caviar.  When ripe, each finger lime fruit contains hundreds of caviar-sized pearls that, under pressure from the outer skin which, like actual caviar, "pop" when you bite or cut into them. As access to fresh Finger Limes is growing, but still very limited, we have freeze-dried the fruit into a beautiful Finger Lime powder and all the goodness has been preserved in this process.

Finger limes have a lovely fresh lime sherbet flavour are perfect when paired with seafood and they provide a unique accent in cocktails, salads, and desserts.  Add to a smoothie for extra goodness. Sprinkle a little over your breakfast yoghurt and fruit try it with muesli or sprinkle over porridge.

Sprinkle over tacos, grain bowls, tofu, green salads, fruit salads, or sprinkled over sliced avocado or melons and served as a snack. 

You can add it to a fresh seafood ceviche where it's perfect tartness helps pickle the fish while adding its tangy deliciousness or sprinkle over a fresh prawn and watermelon salad for a zesty difference. Try sprinkled over grilled salmon, fresh oysters, seared scallops, and sushi and sashimi.

This tart and tangy flavour is beautiful sprinkled over cakes or add to cream, its wonderful in creamy desserts like panna cotta or ice-cream. Or just a little sprinkle over the top as it looks pretty, tastes great and is good for you! Rim the edge of your cocktail glass with Finger Lime Superfruit Powder and add a zesty sparkle to gin, vodka and white rum cocktails such as mojitos and  margaritas and don't forget martinis, and gin fizz or you can simply rim the glass in Finger Lime Superfruit Powder.
