    Dried Lime

    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 limes are essentially the same but differ in that they are sun dried. The black limes have a more intense flavor and both are completely free of chemicals and additives.
