Help! I am drowning under Bearss limes!

Our prolific, hard-working, semi-dwarf  Bearss lime is loaded with fruit. Many fell to the ground during our hot spell last week. And so, after making gallons of limeade, freezing lime cubes, preserving yellow limes a la marocaine (green ones turn grey from the salt) and zesting the fragrant rind into pots of fresh fig chutney and fresh fig jam (our fig tree is competing with the Bearss lime), I am at a loss as to what to do with them! 

Does anyone have any other ideas? I’d love to hear them!
