kaffir lime, oh so hard to get, let alone store

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Living in chosen but isolated part of Tasmania, wow, I got some. Like to keep fresh but storage?...Freeze and lose flavour?

Would there be any point in say storing them in olive oil or some such medium in the fridge?

I think I've bought enough for a year!!!!

Help?

Zest the peel then dehydrate and freeze.

then

Juice the rest and freeze.

or

Cut in wheels then dehydrate and freeze.

 

No it won't be like having a fresh lime but then again you won't have wasted all of that money.

Freezing is the way to go.
I have had some in a jar from the shop and they were pretty tasteless.
I no longer have any problem as I managed to get my hands on 2 trees and now I grow them myself smile.gif
The only problem is that I can eat the leaves faster than they grow

Not silly.

Was not even sure what the juice part was used for until I googled.

Shampoo and head lice treatments.

:lol:

Not very appetizing at all.
