Australian Finger LimeThe finger lime is native to Australia and is used in a variety of ways. It is loaded with antioxidants. Many chefs use this fruit for squeezing over seafood and for drinks mixed with gin and tonic. The finger lime is also used to make marmalade. The taste of the antioxidant rich fruit is a cross between a lime and a grapefruit and has a surprisingly unique unexpected flavor.

A fresh finger lime can last when properly stored in the refrigerator for many weeks. The best way to prepare a finger lime for use is to cut it crosswise then squeeze out the pulp. It can be used to make a lemonade and is especially tasty when mixed with mineral water.  With oysters it is used to enhance the flavor and is used as a garnish with many dishes.

Adding the high antioxidant fruit, finger lime, to tea, punch or any fruit drink will bring a zesty taste which is invigorating and helpful when learning which fruits are good antioxidants. Also, sprinkling a salad with the pulp of the finger lime as a salad dressing makes for a great change. Finger limes can be used as a substitute for lemons in many baked items. As a rich source of antioxidants finger limes are a great substitute for any other citrus and is a good item to use for variety in your diet.
