Dried lime is commonly mistaken as being dried lemon, this citrusy fruit is actually a fresh lime that has been oven dried until all its water content
has evaporated, turning the lime black. This results in an intense, lemony taste that goes especially well with chicken and seafood. Adding a few dried
limes to the pot when boiling meats or chicken helps to get rid of that bad taste that is sometimes present. Its also known as, Loomi Basra, Dried
Lime, Loomi, Amani, Omani, Noomi Basra, Black Lemon and Black Lime.
Dried lime is used to give foods and beverages a sour, lemony or citrus like flavor. They are widely used in Middle Eastern countries in a variety of foods
including soups and stews. Breweries around the world have recently discovered these limes impart delicious flavors when making citrus flavored beer.
These dried limes are sometimes compared to the lemony taste of sumac.
Process of Making
Generally dried lime is made by two different processes. The black dried limes such as these are harvested and essentially baked in special ovens that
dry them out to a black color. The yellow dried lime is essentially the same but differ in that it is sun dried. The black limes have a more intense
flavor and both are completely free of chemicals and additives.
