If life gives you limes, make margaritas....




Margaritas sound  like an exotic use for limes, but as a non-drinker, I have been looking for other delicious ways to use an excess of limes. 

One of the most obvious ways was to make some marmalade.  One kilogram of  limes made a tester jar and 10 other jars. Not only does it taste good on toast, it will make a good glaze for ham and in other sauces. 

To celebrate limes more indulgently, I also made individual lime cheesecakes ( although the recipe calls them pies) - two batches of these didn't last long. 
And with the rest .... just a slice of lime in water because 
Limes are a good source of magnesium and potassium.
