I was looking for a lime sauce recipe and couldn't find one, so I made this recipe with limes instead of lemons. Absolutely delicious as a topping for cheesecake. I used two limes, since they are so much smaller than a large lemon, and it worked perfectly. I did strain out the rind after simmering, but only because I didn't like the looks of the green rind. Not too tart, not too sweet. Really good.
I needed a quick dessert topping for my pound cake and this was the perfect choice. what a wonderful recipe.Even my mom was impressed.
WOW... this was wonderful! I served it over angel food cake with strawberries and blueberries. My husband also had some over vanilla ice cream and said it was great. I made it ahead of time and just reheated it... it was awesome!
