One example of this is frozen lime leaves, which we can have delivered to your door. We love cooking with lime leaves because they bring a whole new dimension to your cooking. If you’re unfamiliar and have never heard about them before, then here is our quick overview of frozen lime leaves and their role in Thai cuisine. What are Frozen Lime Leaves? Our frozen lime leaves come from the makrut lime plant. This is a specific citrus tree that is native to Thailand. Their juices are usually really sour and are not often used for cooking but the leaves are perfect. These flavour-packed leaves are usually only available in Thailand but our products are frozen before they are shipped, ensuring that you can have the freshest possible leaves for you to cook with. They’re frozen when they’re the freshest, ensuring that you have the best possible flavours in your cooking. What Do They Taste Like? One of the best parts of these frozen lime leaves is the fact that they are delightfully tangy, bringing the flavour that you’d usually expect from the fruit. But because it’s a leaf, however, it also brings a herbal depth to the flavour that doesn’t compare to anything else. So if you’re looking to bring in something that has a citrus flavour that will bring harmony to the dish, then you’re looking for frozen lime leaves. And don’t worry, the fact that they’ve been frozen will not distract from the flavour at all. How Best to Use Them? If this is your first time countering frozen lime leaves then you're probably unsure about what you're supposed to put them in. The truth is that you can use frozen lime leaves in a whole variety of different Thai dishes. You can use them in a very similar manner to bay leaves, adding flavour into currys and soups. Alternatively, you can slice them incredibly thinly and add them raw to salads or two other dishes like Pad Thai. You have a lot of freedom with frozen lime leaves to create the dish that you want, so feel free to experiment and try out different flavours. Want to Place an Order?
