Key Lime Pie and....

...other adventures!  

We are leaving tomorrow, February 4 for a week long cruise on the Carnival Fantasy.  One of my favorite things to do is be at sea, cruising to no where.  But this weeks adventure will be taking us to Key West, Nassau and Freeport and then back to Charleston.  

I mentioned to friends we were going to Key West for our first stop.  I love Key West and one of my favorite places to eat there is Blue Heaven.  Outstanding food and Bon Appetit has reviewed them a couple of times.  My favorite breakfast ever was served to me about 15 years ago....Eggs Benedict with Lobster and Lime Hollandaise Sauce.  My oh, my...that was good.   But who can't think about Key West and NOT think about KEY LIME PIE!     So...I had to make one.    

I use the regular recipe on the bottle of Nelly and Joe's Key Lime Juice.  You can get this in about any grocery...we even have it here in Kingston at the Food City.  It is NOT stocked with the regular lime or lemon juices but located in the baking section around the cheesecake mixes on the flour aisle.  

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Key Lime Pie (Authentic)

desserts, pies

4 large eggs
14 ounce sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice
1  9 prepared pastry shell
1/2 tablespoon sugar, or more
1/3 teaspoon cream of tarter

Preheat oven to 350F.

Separate egg yolks and whites in separate bowls.  Beat egg yolks until light.  Add condensed milk and slowly add 1/2 cup lime juice stirring as you go.  Stir mixture until thickened;  the acidity of the key lime juice will "cook" the mixture into a custard.  Pour mixture into prebaked pie crust.

Make a meringue with the egg whites.  While beating egg whites, add sugar,  one tablespoon at a time.  Add a little cream of tarter. Cover pie with meringue and bake for a few minutes until meringue is lightly browned.

Note:  Be sure and perforate pie crust with fork before baking crust. Chill pie until ready to serve.

Yield: 6 servings
