Lime / Loomi Lemon (Citrus Aurantifolia)

Dried limes can be added to soups, meat stews, and tagines. Two or three of the dried limes are added whole to the pot, and as the juices from the other vegetables, meats, and spices, sluice through the lime, the sweet, tangy flavors combine with the stew. Whole limes can also be added to the cooking liquid when making rice.

The acidity and flavor profile of whole limes blends well with lighter stews that have chicken or fish, as well as adding a zesty flavor to simpler legume dishes that have lentils or chickpeas.
