Limes - Each

£0.27

Price is Each

To extract the maximum amount of juice, make sure the limes are at room temperature, and firmly roll them back and forth under your palm a couple of times – that helps to break down some of the flesh’s fibres. Alternatively, microwave them for around 30 seconds, depending on the size of the lime – warming them up also helps them give up more juice.

Store them in a perforated bag in the fridge (for a couple of weeks); in a fruit bowl (for around a week). Once cut, wrap in clingfilm and keep in the fridge for up to four days.

Use them 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 such as a margarita, caipirinha or mojito.
