What to do with all those limes?
Some of you have been very creative in using the limes we got in our baskets. As the lime invasion continues, here are 3 recipes to get rid of them all.
1 – Candied limes in olive oil

Rinse and dry the lemons.
Cut them into 1/2 cm thick slices. Put them in a sieve, sprinkle with salt.
Let it drain for 12 hours.
Wipe them dry and store them in successive layers in a jar.
Add 3 or 4 cloves and a bay leaf (optional).
Cover with olive oil.
Close tightly and store in the refrigerator in a cool place.
To be consumed only after 6 to 8 days.
To use in Tajines, fish dishes…
