Our Persin lime also is known as black lime, noomi basra, limoo amaniloomi, is a lime that has lost its water content, usually after having spent a majority of its drying time in the sun. They are used whole, sliced or ground, as a spice in Middle Eastern dishes. 

Flavor: Strong. They taste sour and citrusy with an earthy smokiness that lacks the sweetness of fresh lime. Since they are preserved, they have a slightly bitter, fermented flavor that is mainly concentrated on the outer skins and seeds.

How to use:

  • To add sour flavor to dishes - In Persian cuisines they are used to flavor stews and soups
  • Cook in with fish
  • In Arab states, they made into warm drinks called Hamidh(sour)
  • Grind and add to your spice seasoning mix
