did you taste a limequat?

kikuchan says:

No, but I was intrigued. I'm kind of regretting not getting a few now, although they were so tiny I wasn't sure what you'd do with them anyway. Maybe they'd be good in drinks? Although juicing them would also be awkward :-)

they look pretty much like normal limes to me

The scale is not easily apparent - they were exceedingly tiny. About the size of a larg-ish cherry tomato I guess.

I wonder if that's what I've been growing - if do they look like miniature limes but taste slightly sweeter

kikuchan says:

Hmmm. What do you use them for/as/with? I thought you could juice/pulp them for drinks, but any other suggestions? They're too teensy to eat I should think - the effort of peeling etc would outweigh the reward?

Dhamaka says:

Drinks - like granita. Definitely worth the time, but knowing they're home grown probably adds to the satisfaction so I'm not sure it'd be the same if you bought them

I also like them squeezed on pancakes or with hot water too

Mmm, that does sound good. Granita, yes! Haven't had that for ages. I think I may pick up some of those limequats next time I go to the market then and give that a go.

babe, did you get my mail about the borough market closure!?

bastards!

It's not quite as bad as it sounds...look
here for a little more info. There's a new rail link going in but the market trustees have been involved in all the planning I think. So, some disruption for a time, but a refurb of the main market buildings too. Could actually end up improving the area...who knows.

it's nice with them - well worth it
nicer with them mixed with lemons you've left a few weeks to get all old and tired on the outside though
