Also known as kaffir lime leaves, it aids in removing toxins from the body. It is often used to flavour Malaysian dishes such as tom yam, asam pedas and laksa.
When cooking with kaffir leaves, it's best to think of them as a kind of aromatic bay leaf — most commonly used to infuse curries, soups, stir fries or stocks. Crush/bruise the leaves before adding them to your dishes, to release the oils and that wonderful fresh lime fragrance.
Some of the most important health benefits of kaffir lime include its ability to promote oral health, detoxify the blood, boost skin health, improve digestion, ward off insects, lower inflammation, aid the immune system, reduce stress, and improve the health of hair.
Remove leaves from stem and keep refrigerated, or frozen (keeps longer in the freezer)
