I've been a bad MoFo'er

So, on this last day of Mofo I plan to play catch up.  Starting with Finger Limes and a giveaway!  These limes just arrived at work last week and I was so excited to bring some home and play with them.  And play is about all I did.  Other than adding these to a cocktail, or squeezing a tad of the caviar like insides onto a sweet biscuit, or even using them in some kind of mock sushi, I can't really think of anything to do with them, and at $45 a pound, it would be pretty expensive to use them in any sort of large quantity.

But don't get me wrong...these little fellas are quite tasty.  The fruit is quite small.  It's about 2 inches long and about the size of a dime around.  The insides really do look like caviar, but each of those little balls is full of delicious sweet and sour lime juice, and there are what seem to be thousands in each lime.

Maybe you all can help me think of something to use them in?  Leave a comment (only on the blog please, not on Facebook!) with an idea of how you might use these in a recipe or as a garnish.   (Keep it vegan please, as I don't want anyone posting ways to use these with seafood...I AM NOT INTERESTED!)

I will pick one random commenter to receive a copy of The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions, as soon as I get my hands on one to send!  Rumor has it that some have started shipping, although the official release date isn't until January.   I will pick a winner on Saturday Night (12-4-2010) at 10pm PST.  Yes, I will ship internationally! CONTEST OVER!!!
