Product description

Citrus hystrix or Kaffirlime can be on the terrace from mid-May to early October. It smells delicious and itself the leaf gives a fresh sweet smell in the summer months.
The fruits are deliciously fresh and taste comparable to lemon.

However, in the Thai and other Asian kitchens, for example, the Citrus hystrix leaf is also used extensively in meals, also known as Djeroek poeroet or Djeruk purut.
Fold the leaf double, pull the leaf grain out of the leaf. Now roll the sheet tightly and cut it into thin strips.
Now it is ready for use.
