7 Limes Recipes: Fulfilling Dinner Ideas With Tangy, Zesty Punch 2022

Perhaps the most well-known aspect of limes is the role they have historically played in assisting mariners. Scurvy, a disease that is brought on by a lack of vitamin C, was once common on ships, but it was prevented by eating limes, which are loaded with vitamin C.

The Indian subcontinent is where limes were first cultivated, and it was around the time of the Crusades that they gained popularity in Europe. Lime plantations in the United States were first established in Florida during the sixteenth century. These days, limes are primarily grown in California, the Southwest, and Florida.

The high concentration of vitamin C found in limes makes them an effective treatment for arthritis pain. They are among the foods that have the highest alkalinizing potential. The combination of lime juice and whey in a beverage makes for an excellent brain and nervous system refresher. Lime is thought to have a cooling effect on the brain and is said to help those who are prone to easily displaying anger, hatred, or other mental disturbances. Those who suffer from these conditions may find that consuming limes has a calming and relaxing effect.

Choose limes that have a glossy appearance and a light to dark green color. Lime skin should be thin, smooth, and relatively thick for the size of the fruit. Lime fruit that has reached its maturity is firm to the touch but not brittle. Dryness can be identified by the appearance of the skin, which may become rough, shriveled, or hard. In most grocery stores, limes can be purchased at any time of the year.
