Also known as a black lime, Persian dried limes are used whole, sliced or ground, as a spice in Middle Eastern dishes. They add a sour flavor to dishes and are used to flavor stews, soups, and fish. Dried limes are strongly flavored and taste sour and citrusy like a lime but they also taste earthy, somewhat smoky and lack the sweetness of fresh limes. Dried lime tea is a herbal tea made from dried limes and is a popular beverage in Iraq.
