Lime Leaves Kaffir 1lb
kaffir lime leaves
Pack Size: 1lb
The leaves of the kaffir lime tree are a dark green color with a glossy sheen.
They come in two parts: the top leaflet is lightly pointed at its tip and is
attached to another leaflet beneath that is broader on its upper edge. The larger leaves are usually darker in color.
Kaffir lime leaves are precious to many Thai dishes, from soups and salads to
curries and stir-fried dishes. They are the ingredient that blends marvelously
with lemon grass and lime juice in dtom yam to give the soup its wholesome
lemony essence. In soupy dishes, add the leaves whole or torn into smaller
pieces, using them as one would bay leaves to flavor broth or stew. For dishes
in which they are a component to be eaten, such as salads, stir-fries and dry or
custard like curries, cut them in very fine needle-like slivers, so that their
strong bouquet can be more evenly distributed.
