Dried Black Lime Powder for Marinades, Rubs, Stews & More

Dried black limes, also known as limu omani, are a traditional ingredient in Persian and Middle-Eastern cooking. Burlap & Barrel's dried black limes start with limes grown on a small family-run farm in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, harvested at peak ripeness and then slowly dried in the sun until they oxidize and turn black. 

Burlap & Barrel then takes the whole dried limes and grinds them into coarse powder. Their ground black lime is full of supercharged citrus flavor; its bright, tart and a little funky (in a good way) with a nuanced earthiness.

How to use

Burlap & Barrel's Ground Black Lime is as versatile as it is flavorful. Use black lime powder anywhere you want a burst of concentrated citrus flavor and a touch of acidity. Add a spoonful or two to the base of soups and stews like Ghormeh Sabzi (a classic Persian herb stew). Mix into spice blends or whisk into marinades, herb-based sauces and dressings. 

For all you budding mixologists out there, shake up cocktail time with Burlap & Barrel’s dried black lime. Mix it with salt and use it to rim glasses (hibiscus margarita, anyone?). Or make a nuanced lime simple syrup: in a small saucepan combine a couple teaspoons ground black lime with 1/2 cup each demerara sugar and water, heat over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, let steep for a couple hours, strain and use in your favorite cocktails.
