The lime tree is bearing so much fruit that I’ve been doing all kinds of things with the limes. I used a few to cook a chicken dish, I made a salad dressing with lime juice and now, this iced tea drink. And if the tree keeps bearing fruit for the next couple of weeks, I’ll consider making lime jam.
Lime jam? Why not? If orange peel can be transformed into orange marmalade, why not lime? But I’ll use the whole fruits, I think, instead of just the peel. But that’s for another day — if the lime tree continues to be as generous with its fruits. Right now, this deliciously refreshing iced tea drink made with loose tea leaves and fresh lime. I’d have added mint leaves but the mint died after all that rain. »
