Fresh kaffir lime leaves (aka wild lime leaves, kieffer lime leaves, limau purut leaves) are distinctly hour-glass shaped “double” leaves that are very aromatic with a lemongrass/lime-esque flavor. They are most commonly used in Southeast Asian cooking. They offer stronger flavor than dried kaffir lime leaves.

Storage: Kaffir lime leaves should be stored in a zip-top bag in your refrigerator.
For long term storage of Kaffir lime leaves, freeze them separated on a chilled baking sheet and then transfer them to a zip-top plastic bag in your freezer. Their appearance will suffer, but their flavor should be maintained.

Shelf Life: Several days fresh, several months frozen.

Kaffir lime leaves are very tough, like bay leaves, and are usually taken out after a dish has finished cooking, unless it then blended or pureed before serving.  That said, they can be very finely slivered for consumption in a salad or as a garnish.   
They are used in soups, stir fries, and curries, paring well with seafood, coconut milk, ginger, galangal root, lemongrass, pork, cardamom, lime juice, basil & Thai basil, chicken, crab and chili peppers.
Often recipes calling for kaffir lime leaves count each half of the hourglass shape as a separate leaf.
