Cook's Note

To make your own dried lime zest: zest your limes with a small-mesh grater and either leave the zest out to dry naturally or put it in a 200 degree F (95 degree C) oven for an hour or two, until it hardens up, then crush it with a mortar and pestle until it's small enough to use as a spice.
