dried limes

I received a gift of dried limes from my cousin. If you have cooked with dried limes before, how have you used them?

a characteristic ingredient of Persian cooking. Use in soups & stews as a seasoning, but don't discard after cooking - cut up and eat the softened bits. Louisa Shafia (a guest editor here) has recipes online. Also used in Indian cooking - curries & the like. Last, I think you can reconstitute them and make lime chutney.

Here is an article about dried limes and a few recipes: http://www.nytimes.com...

As Nancy says, check some Persian cookbooks for more recipes. I discovered them several years ago and usually have some on hand now.

Yottam Ottelenghi uses them regularly... Here's a link to a recent interview of his in Bon Appetit that discusses them: http://www.bonappetit.com...
