OVERVIEW: 

Kaffir lime leaves are from an evergreen citrus tree and are most prized for their fragrant floral scent that straddles the line between lemon and lime. Their unique citrus and herbaceous notes add an elegant flavor to recipes and are crucial to many Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Similar to bay leaves, they should be removed from the dish prior to serving, however, finely sliced fresh leaves can be used for garnish.

 

Kaffir lime leaf's striking flavor enhances chicken, fish and curry dishes, soups and stews and adds an enticing brightness to cocktail drinks and desserts as well. Half of the taste is in the smell of this herb that is so delicious. It is known to have numerous health benefits due to its high content of beneficial organic compounds and antibacterial and antioxidant qualities. It has particularly been used to support oral health and to help in the process of detoxification of blood.
