We wild harvest plum sized, rainforest limes from private forests in sub-tropical Queensland and snap freeze them at their peak ripeness. The Rainforest limes get sliced and begin a three sugar curing process over 4-6 weeks until the natural organic acids in the juice are perfectly matched and balanced with sweetness. You have to taste the result – it’s the best lime product you’ll ever try!
We include the sugar syrup with the fruit as this is sweetened juice only, no water added. Add a splash to iced mineral water (and try adding a dash of vodka or white rum for a cocktail). Try our Rainforest lime fruit confit as a dessert garnish, particularly with a classic lime tart. Simply chop the slices and use about a half a teaspoonful per serve. Garnish iced cakes with our Rainforest lime fruit confit slices or top freshly baked biscuits or friands with some chopped lime confit.
The drained and chopped fruit slices are also delicious in stir-fries and salads or with cheese. Alternatively, finely chop the Rainforest lime fruit confit slices, add a dash of white wine vinegar and some chopped coriander leaf (cilantro). Use this as a garnish on slow-cooked lamb shanks or top your favorite steak, some chicken or fish fillet.
