If you saw my previous post you know already that I got a stash of key limes from the farmers market. I decided to make a key lime pie for father’s day. Let me say that this didn’t seem out of the realm of possiblity. If you don’t know anything about key limes, they are delicious tart little things and when I say little, I mean little. So juicing them is no fun at all, especially if, like me, you don’t have a juicer. Now I had a big pile of limes and intended to make 2 pies, one for father’s day, one for book club since you only need 1/2 cup of the juice…that was pie in the sky (forgive the pun.) I only got 1/2 cup from the whole batch!
Here’s the first step (it took me a couple of days and one very swollen thumb from squeezing): Pie interrupted Part I:
Limes finally squeezed, it was time to add the condensed milk and the egg yolks: Pie interrupted part II
How do you get eggs out of a woven carpet? I’ll let you know if/when I do.
I finally got the pie in the oven and its cooling in the fridge until I go to my parents house – It darn-tooten better be the best darn key lime pie ever….stay tuned.
