Lime Juice Powder has an intense lime flavor and can be used in glazes, drink mixes, meat marinades, pastries, cakes and fillings. One teaspoon equals approximately half a lime.
Dried limes are used to add a sour flavor to dishes, through a process known as souring. In Persian cuisine, they are used to flavor stews and soups. Across the Persian Gulf, they are used cooked with fish, whereas in Iraq they are added to almost all dishes and stuffing. Also, dried lime can be made into a warm drink called Hamidh . Powdered dried lime is also used as an ingredient in Persian Gulf-style baharat (a spice mixture which is also called kabsa or kebsa). It is a traditional ingredient in the cuisines of Iran and the Arab States of the Persian Gulf.
