Versatile Lime Sugar

No recipe image available.This lime flavored sugar can be used for sprinkling on fruits, used to sweeten iced tea or lemonade, or sprinkled on cakes and cookies.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 limes
2 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Remove zest from limes in thin strips using a vegetable peeler. Cut away any white pith from the zest (it imparts a bitter flavor).
  2. Chop zest and then grind in a food processor along with the sugar until the mixture is pale green with bits of zest still visible.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

Tip: For variation, substitute other citrus fruits for the lime, including lemons, oranges, tangerines and grapefruit.
