GLOSSARY TERMS - 'K'
A variety of lime that is small, round and then pointed at the end with a gnarled outer skin that emits a sharp lemon-like aroma. The Kaffir lime is not measured to be a direct member of the lime species. Instead it is categorized as one of the subspecies of citrus fruits, which are linked to the lime family. Since the flesh of the Kaffir is not edible, it is the grated peel and leaves most commonly used for foods. The rind and leaves of the lime are second-hand in recipes for curry pastes, soups, fish, shellfish, meat, poultry, vegetables, marinades, and chutneys, adding a distinct citrus smell and flavor.
A small apple, which has a red outer skin and a cream colored fine textured flesh. This apple has a sweet flavor with a very high sugar content and is a considered a good apple for baking sauces or eating raw.
