Now that limes are increasing in price and will be harder to find in shops as winter is around the corner here, I recently bought limes on special, juiced them, put the juice in ice trays in freezer so that I can still use lime juice regularly until the end of the year. I like lime juice over salad, vegetables, in smoothies. I may try over fish one day soon. I did read of another 'hunter' GT in the UK who also uses lime juice a lot. Lime juice just seems to have such a light, refreshing, cleansing quality, plus is anti-ageing if I remember.

Limes are readily available here in California.
I love 'em too.

I've been freezing lime juice for years.  Having real lime juice sure beats the bottled or frozen "concentrate" available at the stores!

Although limes are for sale in our supermarkets year round, when they are out of season there is so little juice in them that it is an insult.  

When limes are in season and go on sale at a decent price I buy a big bag and dear hubby has the job of squeezing all of them for me - he has to take breaks because his hand and arm get sore!  But we then have a nice supply of lime juice waiting in the freezer almost all the time.  

NOW - if I could find decent avocados that weren't more than half rotten inside by the time they get ripe I would be able to use even more of that lime juice!

You can get a new electric citrus juicer for under $12. It sure beats injuring one's husband.

Just came from the health food store where limes were 99 cents apiece.....It would cost a fortune to fill an ice tray.  Will have to check supermarket. Must limes be organic?  Can pesticides penetrate lime skins?

Good to know others also like lime juice and freeze it. Best to check when prices are lowest and buy up then, here they were au$1.99 per kg as summer came to an end, but in winter and spring, they can be closer to $20 per kilo.
I think the skins protect the limes, and the non-organic ones are quite safe, as limes also support the liver which is one of our major detox organs anyway, plus vitamin C to help out all glands / organs  .

Grapefruit are on the "Clean15" list, so I would think limes and lemons would be too.

I don't know how easy it is for everyone to find one, but I shop a lot at my local Mercado for many veggies and spices. For the first two years they were open, my hubby and I were the only Caucasian folks shopping there. I had to learn a little spanish to be able to communicate, but now since things are so much more expensive there are many seniors shopping there and the employees speak pretty good english. I am able to purchase limes 12 for 1.00, avacados 4 or 5 for 1.00, cheap garlic and onions around .39 a lb. I bring everything home and soak my avacados and limes in vinegar water for 20 mins. and then scrub them. It works out great!

One of my favorite things to cook is broiled salmon with onions and then finish it off with lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro. It is really yummy!

Miss JB - how lucky!! We can't even get avocadoes for 25 cents apiece here in Houston anymore, despite the fact that we are closer to Brownsville!

I would think so too as pests don't come near citrus when in the compost so they prob'ly don't need a lot of sprays when growing?!

You can also freeze the peels after squeezing, if you like using the peels in recipes or to flavor water. I've done that with lemons, so I squeeze them all when they're ripe and enjoy them when I'm ready for them.
