Key Lime Pie

Recommended Posts

In Florida, meeting my wife's extended family at a beach house that everyone was staying at- 18 or so people. Her step mom made a couple of key lime pies with limes from another relatives lime tree. It was an old family recipe and everyone was looking forward to the KLP. Loving deserts, I took a healthy piece and went to the deck to see the gulf and enjoy desert with my wife.

The first bite was horrible!!! I could barely keep it in my mouth. I quickly looked for ways to discard the pie without anyone noticing but my plan needed a distraction. Just then, my father in law took a bite, spit it back onto the plate and made a very loud rant on how bad the pie was in the middle of everyone ....

I took chance of the opportunity and spit my pie out and swiped the pie off the plate, off the deck and into the bushes below. Thanks father in law...

The collective thought was it had been bad limes

Love it! And lemon meringue! 

Just ditch the styrofoam, um, er meringue  and it's good. 

 

That said, I will always go with limes over lemons - KLP or elsewhere.  One tough request, though - sugar free, or I just get to look and drool.  😁

Looking at a recipe in with one-half cup sugar, another with one-quarter cup maple syrple plus 2 TBS. sugar vs. recipes with one cup sugar that seems common. Will try one of the former two this weekend & report back. 🤞

I used to make Key Lime Pie a couple times a year and it was one of my favorites. 

Now that I need to avoid the sugar I get my limes in Gin & Tonic.

That also helps prevent malaria and scurvy
