Kaffir lime - freeze dried and growing

Mars10 | Sep 21, 201608:13 PM     12

Greetings All,

I enjoy SouthEast Asian cuisines, and finally found a peaceful relationship with lemongrass meaning I've learned to grow it and preserve it for later use. I still have difficulty with Kaffir lime though. For the past couple of years, it has been unavailable in our local Asian markets. I've tried lime and lime zest as a substitute but it just doesn't have the same character as kaffir lime leaves. I ordered dried leaves yesterday and wonder what experiences you might have had with using dried leaves. I am willing to attempt growing kaffir lime, however it's not hardy here in USDA zone 7. Has anyone attempted growing kaffir lime indoors and what were the results? Apologies for all the questions and any help is appreciated!
