Blood Limes

Green Box is offering Blood Limes at the moment from Tom and Helen Supple at Jamberoo. Most people wonder what on earth these interesting looking little fruit are, but the lovely Sarah was delighted to find them last week. She grabbed a handfull and announced that she was heading up to the fish market on the wharves at Kiama for Blue Swimmer Crab. Apparently all the excitement is caused by her Crab Spaghettini recipe…

Sarah & Ash with Blood Limes

We would love the full details, but tossed crab, herbs, olive oil and crumbled blood lime were among the ingredients. I’m sure crunchy Berry sourdough bread, Coolangatta Estate Semillon and maybe fresh grated Parmesan cheese would be accompaniments? Anything else you can share Sarah?

Blood Limes are also grown at Coolangatta Mountain Orchard, and are a hybrid of the Australian native red finger lime and rangpur lime. As you can see they are a striking red colour, and have a zingy flavour to match. Pick up a recipe at your Feast market.
