Flavorful Lime Flavedo Applications

Lime Flavedo is rich in citrus flavor and essential oils. There are many ways you can use it to enhance your culinary creations. 

Baked Goods & Frosting 

By using just the colored part of the peel, Lime Flavedo adds a light, tangy flavor to your baked goods without the bitterness of the white pith underneath the peel. This finely grated culinary delight can be incorporated into cookies, cakes, cupcakes, scones, and bars for a refreshing taste. Lime pairs well with sugar cookies, shortbread, coconut, and other tropical flavors. You can also mix the Lime Flavedo into your frosting or glaze for delectable desserts. This adds an explosion of citrusy flavor that complements the sweet taste of your baked goods.
