A Slice of Lime

A Slice of Lime floating on a sea of tin foil... reflecting bit of light next to patches of lime green.   Limes are high in Vitamin C and during the 19th century, English sailors were rationed one lime (which cost less than lemons) a day to fight scurvy.  Refreshing and fragrant, limes are utilized and highly prized in the culinary arts. Once you have grated the green part of the rind for zest, and squeezed out all the juice, save the discarded rind from the juiced limes to clean copper-bottomed pots and pans.  Nothing goes to waste...

Hang this little painting in your kitchen and you will always have 'A Slice of Lime' on hand.
