Lime: Chef Krenzer’s touch
A small zest for big energy! Our Chef Saves The Planet Guy Krenzer loves using lime in his many preparation.
Consuming lime peel is very beneficial for your health and for the planet! After consuming the lime, don’t throw its peel away, keep it until you need it. In addition to flavouring your vegetables, you can also use it for cakes or infused in water. It adds aroma to a dish and may also be used in cocktails.
Choose and store it well
“Don’t judge a book by its cover” but in this case, it is necessary to select a lime with a thin and smooth skin as well as a bright green colour. All these factors guarantee a freshness of the fruit.
On the other hand, when the peel’s colour starts fading away, the fruit then degrades in quality.
Conventional lime cultivation often involves the use of pesticides harmful to humans and the environment. Organic crops do not need this kind of products. Choose an organic lime, especially if you want to eat its peel! Don’t forget to soak it well in a mixture of water and baking soda before consuming it, as we recommend in Less Saves The Planet.
Lime, like its peel, can be stored in a closed container in the refrigerator. If you make the zest, you can even freeze it or dry it in the oven for an hour and a half.
