Sorry, no potatoes this time. Break out your bucket list and make some travel plans. You can't call yourself a true culinary adventurer until you've tried every exotic fruit on this list!

It is kaffir lime. Markut is a Thai word for it. We sometimes use it in soup, but these days, it's mostly found in shampoos and soaps.
