The word Lime conjures up all manner of gourmet delights, but the one that springs to mind first is the slice that is perched on the side of a salt-rimmed glass filled with crushed ice and Margaritas! The tequila and lime mix has to be the world’s best. 

The lime is rarely consumed on its own. Limes are second only to lemons in terms of importance as a flavouring agent for foods, drinks and other, non-edible, products for home and industrial use. The use of lime juice and lime zest to enhance the flavour of rice, potatoes, salads, and cooked vegetables will cut down the amount of salt you need to use, and eliminate the need for adding fat. Lime juice is excellent in marinades, beverages, salad dressings, guacamole, seafood and barbecue sauces, fish and meat stews, sorbets, jams, and let us not forget Key Lime pie.
