Thoughts from March 2018

different drinks, different limes

As anyone who’s ever drunk a mojito or dipped a Dorito in homemade guacamole knows, fresh lime juice can be a game changer. A couple of months back, Easton and Fernando from our Fruit Team travelled over to Mexico & Honduras in search of the best tasting limes for our drinks. We use limes to add a fresh, tasty citrus kick to quite a few of our recipes (11 to be exact).

We only source our limes from three different farms. At one of those farms, the limes are hand washed which means it takes about twelve days to produce one container of lime juice.

   

Limes from Honduras have a very different flavour to limes from Mexico. Limes from Honduras are sharp and sour, whereas limes from Mexico are less intense and easier to drink. Both have their time to shine when it comes to adding a kick to our drinks, though.

 

There are only two varieties of lime– Persian limes and Key limes. We only source Persian limes as they taste much better in our drinks. Key limes are more bitter. Sub-lime in pies, though. We’ll give them that.

sustainability a-z, part 1

The Earth is pretty great. That lovely sunset you posted on Instagram? That was The Earth, #NoFilter. Those ducklings you spotted, waddling along like fluffy little lemons? The Earth again. Mashed potato? That was The Earth, with a bit of help from your mashing muscles.

With so much wonder in the world, it's important we all look after it. We've signed up with Do Nation, to make pledges to help us live our lives on the green side. Inspired by this, we've made an a-z of little changes that add up to make a big difference. 

ants in your pants

Doing a bit of exercise is a great way to be more sustainable. Instead of driving you could walk, cycle, or invest in a fancy pair of rollers blades. Good for you, good for the planet.

boil under

Kettles are pretty inefficient. Cutting down the number of times you boil yours a day will reduce your energy consumption and give you an excuse to pull out the teapot more often.
