Florida Native SIMPLE Key Lime Pie
I am a Florida native who raised Key Lime trees in the back yard. This recipe is as "authentic" as it gets. Key Lime Pie is YELLOW as is a ripe Key Lime. If you see a green "Key Lime" pie or green lime slices or meringue or whipped cream on a "Key Lime" pie it is not authentic. In the late 1800's there was no refrigeration hence the condensed milk. There was no "sour cream", no "confectioners sugar" no whipped cream or any of the other "fresh" ingredients some people use to jimmy up their recipes. A real Key Lime pie is plain, simple. This is the recipe I grew up with. I hope you like it.
