Lime

Limes are an essential ingredient in cuisines all over the world. Originating in tropical Southeast Asia, limes are valued for their zesty flavor. More aromatic than lemons, limes prove the old saying that good things come in small packages. Whether you're marinating fish or adding tartness to your favorite dressing, limes just seem to add that special zip to recipes. Ten limes yield about one cup of juice, which may be frozen for later use.
