Veggie Unearthed: Key Limes
Your Key Limes came to us from Cimporia Citrus in Pierson, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers homes.
Key limes are native to Southeast Asia and was first introduced to America by Spanish explorers traveling to the Florida Keys. Later the key limes spread to subtropical areas of Mexico, Florida and California. These tasty little treats are known for the tart and bitter taste that differs from other limes. They are small in size, have a tough thin rind, and are a yellowish green when ripe. So don’t be surprised to find a mix of yellow and green limes in your box this week.
So what can you do with key lime besides Key Lime Pie? Here are a few ideas to get you started in the kitchen (includes key lime pie):
- Grilled Salmon with Key Lime Butter Sauce
- Pork Loin in Key Lime Sauce
- Key Lime Chicken Kabobs
- Key Lime Short Bread Cookies
- Coconut Key Lime Pie
- Key Limeaid
- Key Lime Cake
- And for the adults in the house: Key Lime Margaritas!
Be sure to add more key limes (5 for $1.00) from the store depending on your recipe requirements.
