My husband has a serious affection for middleeastern food. Serious affection. Which means that we try every middleeastern restaurant in the greater Denver area that we hear about, and also that I often accompany Adam on his quest to find fabulous middleeastern bread (homemade pitas, etc.) in various middleeastern markets/convenience stores that he spots around town. The fabulous perk from all of this searching is that it’s led to the discovery of the most fabulous international market (Arash, for those of you who are here in town). And in this most fabulous of places, there is a Dollar Table reserved for produce that is about to be past its prime (but isn’t quite yet).
On a regular basis, I find an entire bag of still usable limes on this table. For one dollar. Glory.
I then take these limes, juice them, freeze the juice in ice cube trays, and have ‘fresh’ (though, now frozen) lime juice for the plethora of recipes in the world that requires just a tablespoon or two of lime juice (which I always happen to be making on nights that there are no limes in my fridge).
Just thought y’all might need to know. In case you haven’t checked your neighborhood middleeastern market for a Dollar Table. Or in case you make as many cosmos as we do in the summer (anyone have a fabulous, non-alcoholic version of these, by the way?) and need to start building up your stash of lime juice. Or, you know, in case limes go on sale at your regular grocery store. 🙂
