A recent article by Jennifer Kantor in Today Magazine listed “7 surprising household uses for limes.” It suggested drinking a glass of lukewarm water with lime juice in the morning, preserving cut flowers in lime juice, priming hair with it, etc. However, we believe that cooking with this fragrant citrus fruit that has such a short season in Israel is the best use for it.
