Makrut (Kaffir) Lime Leaves grow on thorny, bushy trees. The plant produces small, pear-shaped citrus fruit with bright green, bumpy, wrinkled skin and a highly acidic, astringent juice. The leaves of the tree retain a strong essence of lime flavor and have a unique doubled shape that looks like two leaves joined end-to-end. The attractive jade-green leaves have a clean, fresh, and slightly floral aroma and impart a distinctive citrus taste to any dish.
Makrut (Kaffir) lime leaves are indispensable in Thai cooking, from soups and salads to curries and stir-fried dishes. They are also widely used in Indonesian cuisine. Their exotic aroma permeates and enhances all other seasonings in a way that cannot be achieved through substituting other citrus leaves.
