    Boy, Jett this sounds really good. It might be the one for Easter dinner. I love anything citrus (especially lime) and it's really good after a salty meal like ham....
    and for the cheese crackers how about some garlic or some rosemary or for a sweet alternative some crystalized maple syrup?
