      Lime Sugar Mix


      Very nice on sliced fruit or in iced tea.

      6 limes
      2 1/4 cups granulated sugar

      Remove zest from limes in strips with a vegetable peeler and cut away any white pith from zest (pith imparts a bitter flavor). Chop zest (about 1/2 cup), then grind in a food processor with sugar until mixture is pale green with bits of zest still visible.

      Cooks' notes: Lime sugar may be made 3 days ahead and kept, chilled, in an airtight container.

      The sugar becomes aerated in the food processor; do not pack when measuring.

      Makes about 3 cups.
