Are KEY LIME LEAVES edible?

Anne | Feb 18, 2005 11:13 AM

I have a small Key lime plant in a pot in my home. The crushed leaves SMELL wonderful! Can I use them as you would Kaffir lime leaves? I imagine they aren't quite as tasty, but Kaffir lime leaves are impossible to find here. I guess I just want to know if the Key lime leaves are OK to use in cooking---they aren't poisonous, are they? Thanks!
