Kaffir lime leaves have a lingering yet delicate citrus flavour. The rind of the fruit is slightly bitter. Both leaves and rind quickly lose their flavour when dried, so it’s best to use fresh if available. Kaffir lime leaves are used in many Thai, Indonesia and Malaysian curries, soups, salads and stir fries. The rind is also used in curry pastes and fish cakes. You can remove whole leaves from the dish before serving (similar to how you would use bay leaves) or shred finely if using as a garnish. Kaffir lime loves fish, seafood, mushrooms, noodles, pork, chicken, rice, coconut milk and vegetables. It marries well with Thai basil, chilli, coriander, galangal, ginger, lemongrass and star anise.
Related to apples, pears and plums, the quince is a member of the Rosacea (rose) family. They must be cooked before eating - they are deliciously fragrant, and once cooked, the flesh turns rosy pink and the flavour develops a sweet, piquant richness. Quince contains a naturally high level of pectin, therefore one of its main uses is as a preserve, both on its own and as an addition to other jams and chutneys. Try this Roast Quince recipe by Donna Hay - it contains cinnamon, vanilla bean and orange rind.

What makes it unique is the crunchy texture and mild flavor. That's why it can be enjoyed raw without removing the skin. Typically, this veggie has a tiny bit of a bitter taste, but the bitterness could become stronger when the plant is over-matured. As for the aroma, they have a very neutral smell when raw and develop a little earthy scent when cooked. Try this authentic Thai Eggplant & Pumpkin Green Curry recipe - this curry is such a celebration of everything from the earth.
