I have harvested two large batches and the best way to keep Key lime juice is to squeeze it when it’s ripe.
My youngest son gave me this fabulous key lime juicer several years ago and it is so fast and easy to use! Just cut the key lime in half and squeeze. Now key limes are small, and it takes a lot to make a pie, but look at this full jar from what I have harvested already for this year!!
Now don’t throw away the ends yet… Boil them down in a pot.I cook them down until smuchie and then let the mix cool. Use an old rag and wipe the mix on your copper pots for a quick and easy way to clean them up.
The favorite thing to make with key limes:
My Son and I made this pie this weekend in celebration of the Marine Corps birthday and Veterans Day. Thank you to all who serve and protect us. Semper Fi
