Frieda's Specialty Produce - Thai Lime

Overview

What is a THAI Lime?

  • The Thai Lime (also known as kaffir lime) has a pebbly skin that is mostly used for its zest, as the bitter juice inside can be extremely overpowering. It has an extreme and intense fragrance that is especially used in Thai and Lao cuisine, and cannot be matched by any other citrus or spice. The Thai lime leaves are more commonly used than the fruit itself, and can be dried or frozen.

  • Use the zest and leaves sparingly in curries, soups and stir-fry dishes.

Health Benefits

  • Has soothing properties that is believed to relieve the symptoms of influenza and coughing.

How to Choose

  • Choose fairly firm, fragrant limes.

How to Store
