Cooking Local: Shikuwasa Gingerade
CONTRIBUTED BY KELLY GILLOTTI
It’s called an Okinawan lime, but I think it’s much tastier than lime. If limes and tangerines had a teeny tiny little baby, it would be named shikuwasa.
I just had to make some refreshing juice with this. The tiny citrus fruits make this a wee bit time consuming, but I just love shikuwasa so much, it was worth it.
- Juice of 30 shikuwasas (roughly 6 tbsp) (シークァーサー)
- 2 cups cold water
- 4 tbsp honey (more or less to taste)
- ½ inch nub of ginger
Put everything in your blender and blend for 30 seconds or so.
The shikuwasa and ginger are great digestive supports, so bring this drink to your next picnic!
