finger-lime soda water…
a friend of mine gave me a sample of these delicious and interesting FINGER LIMES! yes, that is their name. and one can see why, eh?! they look like little nubby fingers…
perfect for halloween, i say!
after cutting one open, i remembered that i had tried them before! here’s part of the description i read :
“The globular juice vesicles inside these citrus fruits have been likened to a “lime caviar”, which can be used as a garnish or added to various recipes. The fresh vesicles have the effect of a burst of effervescent tangy flavour as they are chewed. The fruit juice is acidic and similar to that of a lime.”
those little vesicles are so fun to eat! they “pop” in your mouth and they flavour is intense!
the fruit itself is so interesting-looking! some of them are pink inside!
i made a little bubbly water with my sodastream and squeezed in some of the finger limes and their juices, along with these halloween-themed ice cubes.
it was super yummy!
of course, the adults could add in a little vodka or libation of choice… 😉
when i was a kid and i would be lucky enough to have a glass of soda as a treat, i used to sit there with my mom and be like, “check it out ma, the bubbles are taking the elevator to the top!” and she would giggle… and to this day i remember that and thought of it when these little vesicles floated to the top of this glass. 😉
ohhhh, that childhood imagination.
wishing you all a safe and happy halloween!
are you dressing up? and if so, as what?!
