- Pop whole lime into the microwave for about 30 seconds on high. This will warm up and burst juice cells making it easy to extract liquid. It also mellows the tartness.
- Sqeeze as much lime juice out as possible. You may need to cover it with tea towel first if it is very hot.
- Add sugar, stirring until dissolved.
- Stir through mint.
- Use to brush over fruit for kebabs, and then pour remaining over finished kebabs. Or try stirring through a fruit salad for another delicious idea.
