Everyone in our house has been sick on and off for a few weeks now. I was cleaning up in the kitchen the other day and saw that we still had some Texas limes that friends shared with us. I knew I'd never use them up before they got icky, so I started thinking about what I could use them for.
It was a nice breezy day and we had the windows open, but it was also chilly and Phee and I were getting cold in the house. Airing everything out was great, but we needed to close up for a while. So, I decided to make a spring citrus simmer for the stove.
The smell was amazing! These limes were really juicy and fragrant. You'll definitely want to give this a try. It would be perfect to simmer gently on the stove before a spring get together at your house!
1 lime sliced
1/3 t lemon extract
1 t ginger
1 T vanilla
2 c water
Simmer on the stove and add water as needed.
