An abundance of limes

Unlike our lack of passionfruit we have more limes than we know what to do with.

limesThere is only so much lime marmalade and lime pickle that you can consume and we have had lime tea cake, lime cordial etc. so I have now resorted to freezing the lime juice

frozen lime juiceso I can make use of that rather than letting the limes go to waste. I will use the frozen juice to make Daiquiris.  Now that is a good use for limes.

CocktailApparently the daiquiri was the favourite drink of JFK and Ernest Hemingway.

daiquiri recipe

I use 45ml rum and 30 ml of lime juice and a handful of crushed ice along with 2 tsp caster sugar.

    I froze lime juice also in ice cube trays. I also froze the zest too. I live in Florida so lime season comes after Christmas.

      I didn’t think to freeze the zest. That is a logical thing to do as so often a recipe calls for juice and zest. I will make sure I now freeze some zest. Thanks for the idea.
