When I traveled to Boston late last summer, the ex and I planned to serve margaritas as a prelude to several dinners for family and friends. We bought the tequila and the triple sec, and I brought along a large bag of coarse sea salt. For the limes, I suggested that she buy two 16-ounce bottles of Realime, rather than us doing all that washing, cutting, and juicing of dozens of the real things.
That was a major mistake. On the first night, the cocktails were bitter and insipid. We raced out the next day to buy some real limes for the other dinners.
This product is probably fine if a recipe calls for a quarter teaspoon of lime juice, or if you want a splash of lime on your broiled or pan-fried fish. But don’t use it when lime juice is a principal ingredient. Bite the bullet and juice the real thing.
