Desert Lime

$8.99$23.99

Found in the arid areas of Qld, NSW and SA is the little lime that packs a punch-the Australian Desert Lime (Citrus glauca). Early settlers used it for jams and cordials. Pete’s brother used to put them in his water bottle to make a refreshing drink when he was working as a young lad in country Queensland. Used by First Nations Peoples as a food source for many thousands of years- we are lucky to be able to share this nutrition packed superfruit!

Flavour: Sharp, refreshing, strong lime flavour.

Provenance

Our Desert Limes come from a grower in the Riverland, South Australia. We freeze dry, powder  and pack the desert limes in our processing shed.

Desert Limes are an outstanding source of Vitamin C- having 14 times the Vitamin C of blueberries. They are an excellent source of folate, are high in calcium and are a source of Vitamin E and lutein. They have a high potassium/sodium ratio (for more nutritional information see RIRDC).

*Always consult your health/medical practitioner before trying new foods.

Try a small amount (1/4 tsp) in your water to give it a hint of lime (let it sit for a few minutes to get the flavour through)

Use as a healthier substitute for lemon or lime in recipes (you will need less as the flavour is more concentrated than limes)
