These limes are good for sore throat. Break off piece, add to hot water to make tea.
1) Wash limes (use local limes with thin skin) 2) Dry limes 3) Rub limes with white Hawaiian salt 4) Use solar dryer/screen/colander to dry limes for couple of days in full sun; keep bugs and flies off 5) Place limes in glass jar *** must be glass, NOT plastic *** 6) Add more Hawaiian salt, shake jar to distribute evenly 7) Dry in sun for few months - longer the better 8) Once a week turn limes to dry evenly - more often better 9) Make sure water/rain does not get into jar 10) Night time bring inside
