Limes & Lemons are quite versatile. The juice goes well in Salad dressings, Rice, & most Vegetables. Adding to fresh Juices or in plain Filtered water is a nice Alkalizing addition. The rind is wonderful in cookies, breads, cakes, rice, etc. If you fear they may go bad (they will last 1-2 weeks on the counter out of the sun), juice & freeze them in ice~cube trays for later use.
For individuals prone to Oxalate~containing Kidney Stones, care must be taken when eating too much of the peel. As well, individuals with Vitamin A absorption issues should beware that the peels can interfere with absorption even more.
