We’re having a bumper crop of limes this year. The tree is laden with fruit and there are loads of flowers, promising even more delicious limes! Last year we made home-made lime cordial (a great success!) and salted limes (not quite as successful). This year we are thinking marmalade. Any recipes will be appreciated.

this is very late but if you get many more limes ypou can try boiling them, sweeten them with syrup and follow one of 2 routes.
pickle with pickle masala(coarse salt, dry chillis, coriander seeds coarsely ground…no mare-thii i e fenugreek)and a splosh of oil .it needs to stand for a bit.
or go no or little spice and use vinegar.and green chillis. sorry am sketcky on details coz i dunno for sure.

ps .yellow limes are normally used for pickling. are these tiny little “prayer” limes south indians use…if so i dunno if they will work as well
