The lovely people over at Gourmet Finger Limes sent me some beautiful limes to play with!
These unique fruit are not well known even in Australia where they grow. The following is a small excerpt from http://www.gourmetfingerlimes.com/ please check out there website if you are interested in learning more or would like to purchase some of these little beauties to experiment with yourself.
For the uninitiated, finger limes are a slender fruit packed with hundreds of caviar-shaped pearls that explode crisply on your tongue releasing a burst of effervescent zest; a revitalizing punch that sets it apart from every other fruit.
One of the things that make finger limes so exciting is the phenomenal range of colour and flavour between varieties. The relationship between colour and taste is intriguing and versatile. Lime tones tend to be more tart and refreshing whilst pinker flesh indicates more fragrance and a sweeter touch. The flavour is considered to be superior to conventional limes due to the quality of aroma and flavour and the unique blending of citrus with herbaceous undertones.
I hope you enjoy my first ever finger lime recipe. I can promise you there will be many more to come 🙂
