'lime' on Serious Eats

Bake the Book: Lime Bars

The crumbly shortbread base of these bars contrasts well with its tart lime filling; they're dense enough to be satisfying during the winter, but with enough tang to serve as a reminder that warmer days are ahead. A handful of toasted dried coconut sprinkled on top ties it all together. More

Scooped: Mango Lassi Frozen Yogurt

Next to masala chai, there's no greater beverage ambassador to India than a mango lassi. And while it's not my favorite lassi variation out there, I can't deny that it's a pretty smart thing to do with mangoes and yogurt. It's also a good basis for getting more frozen yogurt into your life. More

From The Pastry Dungeon: Rhubarb and Lime Pavlovas

Pavlovas are a traditional Australian/New Zealand dessert. A shell of crisp, airy meringue encases a pillowy marshmallow center. They are classically served with sour passion fruit or kiwi to offset the sweetness of the meringue. Here, pretty pink rhubarb with tart, buttery lime curd makes an excellent substitution and a colorful spring dessert. More

Preserved: Mango Lime Jam

It wasn't until I met my husband that I experienced the pleasure of eating a fleshy, ripe mango cut straight from the core, juice dribbling down my chin. This recipe condenses all those delicious mango flavors into a bright, not-too-sweet jam. More

Scooped: Kaffir Lime and Gin Ice Cream

This is the full, pure flavor of kaffir lime distilled into ice cream form. Intense, but rounded out by dairy and eggs, perfect for scooping over warm peach pie (peach and lime is a combination that doesn't get nearly enough love). But as long as we're talking about distilling flavors, let's talk about gin, which at its core is an extraction of a bouquet of herbs and spices that conveniently go quite well with limes of all forms. I don't know of a gin infused with kaffir lime leaves, but I'll readily make a gin and tonic with them. And I'll even more readily make ice cream with the pairing. More
