Kaffir limes

Kaffir Lime Leaves hero

These are rough, warty fruit, which grow on a thorny bush. They are not usually available in the UK, but we can buy kaffir lime leaves instead, which give an astringent, aromatic flavour to Thai recipes such as curries, pastes and soup recipes. They are also available dried.

Tip
Fresh Kaffir lime leaves don't keep well, so if you don't use all the leaves in a recipe, freeze them for later use.
