This deliciously tart and acidic fruit tastes strongly of lime (as you would expect) but with a sherbet characteristic and that unique difference that only comes with Indigenous foods. The whole fruit may be used in cooking, if you are lucky enough to have some available. Because of it's miniature size the skin and pips are not obtrusive, so no special preparation is required. You can use whole but we most often chop them finely or make a puree.
Wild Lime has an intense flavour. To give you some idea of it's strength, use a ratio of 10 whole (zest, flesh and juice) wild limes to one West Indian or Tahitian Lime. That may not sound that impressive but these feisty little limes only weigh about one gram each. We have carefully freeze-dried our Wild Limes and made them into a convenient powder for use, as it is very difficult to find fresh or frozen Wild Limes in any market or supermarket, perhaps with a few, limited exceptions. For most of us the freeze-dried Wild Lime Superfruit Powder is a blessing as it can be used so easily is easily stored and is very intense in flavour as it is a concentrated version of the fresh fruit.
We use Wild Limes wherever you would usually use Limes - with seafood, on salads, in drinks, smoothies, and in desserts. We've made a compound butter with our Wild Lime Superfruit Powder combined with fresh basil and unsalted butter - so delicious to use with poultry and seafood. We've made salad dressing to go with a quail egg and prosciutto salad and we've baked buttery friands with Wild Lime Superfruit Powder. It is lovely in a crème Brule too! Click here for recipe ideas
