Lime Sugar

This sugar, used in the cookies and lime ice, is great to have on hand for sprinkling on cut fruit or to add a boost to iced tea.

Yield: about 3 cups


  • 6 limes
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar


  1. Remove zest from limes in strips with a vegetable peeler and cut away any white pith from zest (pith imparts a bitter flavor).
  2. Chop zest (about 1/2 cup), then grind in a food processor with sugar until mixture is pale green with bits of zest still visible.


Lime sugar may be made 3 days ahead and kept, chilled, in an airtight container.

The sugar becomes aerated in the food processor; do not pack when measuring.
