I’ve somehow managed to have a bowl full of limes, and I don’t mean 2 or 3 extra limes, I mean I have about 9 limes sitting in a bowl.
So what the heck do I do with these limes? Make something of course! But I need recipes that call for regular limes, not key limes. Here’s a round up of some that I found. Hopefully you’ll be seeing what I decided to make with all my limes sooner or later. (probably sooner, last time I checked, I didn’t pay the premium price for the immortal limes)
sweet lime recipes:
1. Lime Pie (sans the key) // 2. Watermelon Peach Limeade // 3. Lime Sandwich Cookies // 4. Tequila-lime Sorbet // 5. Lime Sherbet
savory lime recipes:
6. Mojito Grilled Lime Chicken Wings // 7. Grilled Honey Lime Chicken // 8. Chili Lime French Fries with Cotija Cheese // 9. Cilantro Lime Chickpea Salad
Do you have any favorite lime recipes? I don’t yet…maybe I will after I use up all these limes!
I posted even more lime recipes on my cooking with limes pinterest board
Thank you for considering my lime pie.
You are welcome! It looks so good!
Chickpeas look amazing!
All the recipes look wonderful, but that lime pie is calling my name!
Caipirinhas. Make caipirinhas. Best use of a lime I’ve ever found! We learned to make them from an indulgent bartender in Greenwich Village one slow Sunday afternoon. Yummy!
I had to look that up because I had never heard of caipirinhas before. Could you use rum as a replacement for the cachaca?
Juice and put in ice cube trays:)
What a wonderful versatile collection of lime recipes!
Reblogged this on SydneyJoTo and commented:
I freaking love limes. I FREAKING LOVE THIS POST!!! Thanks Steph!
Reblogged this if that’s alright with you Steph because I-Love-Limes-To-Death and this probably just made my life. Thank YOU!
Haha that’s great! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Cachaca *is* hard to come by, but it is worth it, Steph. If you’re going to switch out rum, you have to go silver, of course, no spiced, and get a really good, high quality brand. Cachaca is much less harsh (imo) than rum, though both are derived from sugar cane, I believe. You know who would know the answer to this? The Marcelas. 🙂
Also, I want chickpeas, and french fries, and sorbet, and sandwich cookies. I wonder if you could make up your own marinade or something using the limes, such that it could be applied to any protein source. I love all the stuff you post, but as a veghead, the chicken is out. But i could do a tofu marinade! 😀
