PRE­SERVE LIMES WHILE THEY ARE IN SEA­SON

North Harbour News - - SITUATIONS VACANT -

Tahi­tian limes will be turn­ing yel­low by now, a sign they are fully ripe and will soon drop off the branch. If you have more than you need, freeze whole fruit in freezer-safe plas­tic bags. When thawed, there’s no no­tice­able drop in qual­ity of ei­ther the zest or the juice. Limes are cheap and plen­ti­ful right now so put a few on ice for sum­mer; in the lead up to Christ­mas, they cost as much as $39.99/kg.
