Lime Cheeks

  • Tip

Hold the fruit (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit) in a vertical position (one of the ends, be it the stem or blossom end) on a cutting board. Hold a knife perpendicular to the board, about 1/2 inch into one side, but not all the way to the center. That’s a cheek. There are at 2 of them on each lime.
