How to deseed fingerlimes
Fingerlimes are a native wild fruit, they are used to stress but since the onset of climate change we are noticing that some varieties of Fingerlimes are producing seed.
Chef Karl Kanetani from Town Restaurant, Bangalow NSW has devised a method of opening the Fingerlime fresh or defrosted snap frozen so the seeds remain on the stamen of the fruit, it’s easy and no picking out of seeds.
How to defrost snap frozen fingerlimes
• Defrost frozen Fingerlimes in 1cm cold water and 1 cm of ice.
• Fruits will form ice casing, leave in water until ice casing dissipates.
• Dry on paper towel, serve.
This method of defrosting was originally shown to Fingerlime caviar by Melissa Paspaley from Paspaley pearls in Darwin used to defrost the precious pearl meat. It is also perfect for the Fingerlime as it defrosts from the inside out thus leaving the caviar cells intact, clear, crisp and the vibrant colour remains.

The freeze-dried powders and chips are a superior product because the fruit does not lose its nutrients, retains flavour, the taste is more intense and has a longer shelf life. Freeze dried powders sold in 1kg bags (1kg – 100kg bulk supply available).
