Describe the Taste of Limes

almond tree | Oct 20, 2012 11:51 PM

Fresh limes are not commonly available where I live.
In fact, I saw them at the market the other day for only the second time in 21 years! I bought a bagful, and used some of them to make a Lime Glazed Cake for my son && his new gf.
Gf and I loved the cake; son thought it was fine but couldn't really "get" the difference between lime and plain old lemon. We tried to describe the subtleties of lime flavor in words but apparently weren't eloquent enough.
Anyone else want to try?
