A really unusual citrus fruit, it is large and has a great deal of pith. Prized by the Italians around late autumn, for its thick skin which lends itself perfectly to candying! Traditionally cooked in a syrup for hours until the skin takes on a translucent look and then dipped in dark chocolate, it is a treat adored at Christmas. We love it for it's delicate flavour, somewhere between and grapefruit and a lime, with the most pungent snappy zest. We take the freshest, greenest, tightest fruit that we can find during it's short season. We zest and juice them all by hand and then infuse and mix them with finest English Sea Salt. Next, they are slowly dried (sometimes this takes days) until they take on all the flavour of the limes. They pack a punch and are great with any ethnic food spicy food. Mexican style chicken with chilli and lime salt is a winner. Rim a glass with it and see how it raises the margarita to new heights! Also fantastic with fish and also delicious when teamed up with pomegranate and turmeric salt for a Persian vibe.
