      Omani Black Lemon (Whole)

      Sold out
      $3.00

      This deliciously sour fruit is used in Persian and Arab cooking and adds a zestiness to fish, chicken, lamb, lentils, or soups. The flavor is at once astringent and fermented -- in a good way. Add the whole lemons to stews or soups early in cooking. Prick with a paring knife towards the end of cooking and squeeze out the liquid to kick up the tart flavor of your dish.

      Also known as black lime, Persian lime or limu omani.

      Recipe: Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Beef Stew with Greens)

      Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.

      You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
