Although the Satsuma mandarin harvest is still several weeks away, we have other lovely fruit available at the farm for your Thanksgiving Table. We grow key limes on our farm here in Newcastle, California. Key West Florida suffered losses during the hurricane, but we have a bumper crop. We dare you to tell the difference between Newcastle and Key West Key limes. Tart, juicy, delicious. Great for cocktails and desserts.
Key limes make a delicious frozen key lime pie. It is so refreshing after a rich holiday meal and it is so simple to prepare.
Here is our favorite recipe for a key lime pie.
Easy Frozen Key Lime Pie
Use any recipe you like, or purchase a premade graham cracker crust:
Mix until blended:
1 Tablespoon grated lime rind
1/2 cup of lime juice
1 can of sweetened condensed milk.
1 cup of whipped cream (or for a lower fat version you can use Greek yogurt to replace some, or all of the cream)
Pour this into the pie shell and freeze until solid (at least 3 hours).
You can also top with more whipped cream and shredded lime rind to pretty this sweet treat up.
