Thai dinner: Interesting knobbly citrus

oops, these are kaffir limes. (their dark green leaves are) much more lemony than lemon grass and delicious in thai curries and soups, mostly combined with coconut milk.

i don't find the leaves to be terribly lemony, but uniquely fragrant. they are unbelievably delicious in cocktails, vinaigrette, steamed mussels, etc.
