Premium Ground Black Lime is grown on a small farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice. It's also a good alternative to makrut / kaffir lime in southeast Asian dishes.
The taste has been described as sour combined with a quick barb of citrus, and then the musk of fermentation beneath. Hawaiians might describe the flavor to Li Hing Mui - the perfect blend of sweet and sour (but more sour!)
