Can I Eat The Rind of a Lime?

 

Q. Is it OK to eat the peeling of a lime?
 
A. Yes, you can eat the rind of a lime. The outer layer can be used for zesting to add flavor to water and beverages, dressings, marinades, and baked goods. Did you know the juice and zest from lemons or limes can work as a salt substitute and may help prevent the cold and flu?  Check out our Fruit & Veggie Recipe Database for ways to use citrus zest.
