Continuing to use the goodies brought to me by my parents from the DeKalb Farmer’s Market, I decided to make a key lime pie for fathers day dinner tomorrow. If you have never seen a key like and can’t quite get the scale from the picture – those tiles are 2″ square – so you see, they are very small.
I have so far juiced about 1/2 of them – there were double what’s in the picture now and I have a grand total of 1/3 cup of juice and I had to stop because one of my thumbs is now much larger than its normal size from all the squeezing. I need to get to a 1/2 cup to make the pie and I was planning to make 2 pies, but I don’t know if I can get to a full cup of juice without some sort of trick.
Any ideas on how to make the job easier – I don’t have a juicer, obviously and I did already discover they are easier to juice at room temperature.
All I have to say is – this pie better be good!
