Ingredient of the Week: Sweet Limes



I went to the fancy store today to get some fancy food.

Namely, Meyer lemons.

Alas nay!  Meyer lemons were not to be found.



But there were...sweet limes.

Whaaaaat is a sweet lime, you ask?

I 'unno.




Gonna eat some and find out!

I cut one open, as you can see, and licked it.

It was sweet!



Tomorrow I'm going to make an ade of some sort out of them, or maybe just a juice if they're so sweet they don't require ade-ing.

Only experimentation of the highest scientific order can tell us.

Have you had these mysterious little citrus before?  Did they blow your mind?  Do they make a fine ade?  Tell me what you know!
