This ground Black Lime is grown on a family farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice. It's also a good alternative to makrut / kaffir lime in southeast Asian dishes.
Tasting notes: Bright Citrus, Garden Herbs, Tanned Leather
Cooking: Sprinkle into rice, soups, fish and kebabs. Toss with vegetables prior to roasting. Use as garnish for cocktails, especially sours and margaritas.
