Iíll trade you 5 Gitmo terrorists for one Costco Key Lime Pie
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-6-2014 | MOTUS

Enough of foreign affairs for one week, here’s some important news: it’s Key lime season again and that means…the giant Key lime pies are finally back in the coolers at Costco.

Costco-Key-Lime-Pie-g

They are monstrously good, if you like a little tart with your sweet – and who doesn’t? Winking smileWinking smile

Additionally, it's actually good for you; packed with tons of vitamin C that can prevent scurvy, a disease that has recently reemerged, especially around Washington D.C..

keylime3 The vitamin C is harvested by scraping off the lime’s incredibly thin skin and then reaming the heck out those little berries orbs.

I don’t know if the pie provides any protection from another old ailment that has also raised it’s ugly head again: beriberi (alternate spelling, “barrybarry”) which is caused by a B (boy) vitamin deficiency.

article-2648339-1E7641EA00000578-678_634x454Beriberi is a disease caused by a lack of Vitamin B1 (thiamin).The thiamin-deficiency disorder is characterized by muscle weakness.”

Butt I say why take any chances when you can score a whole pie for $11.99 that will easily serve 20 people.

key lime Or 2, if they’re really, really hungry.

OK..I’m gonna jump in with both feet, and await the sling and arrows....key limes suck...and they’re NOT worth the $$ Period. You can make a far better pie..with regular limes. Blind taste tests have confirmed that multiple times...

Gotta disagree, here. Key limes have a taste distinct from other limes (found that out the hard way truing to sub key lime juice for regular lime juice in another recipe... did not get the taste I was looking for), and one that works very well for that awesome southern dessert.

Could not agree more. I intensely dislike those tiny key limes. The Persian limes that we're used to buying at the supermarket are much better....in any recipe. Mmmmm....that sounds like a lime recipe cue...remember these on a FReeper recipe thread.

SPRING LIME TEA COOKIES / light, buttery tea cookies bursting with citrus flavor

PREP Steep 5 min 2 tea lime juice, 1/3 c milk. BATTER Cream 1/2 c butter, 3/4 cup sugar light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in 2 tea lime zest, infused milk. Blend in combined 3/4 c flour, tsp b/powder and 1/4 tsp b/soda, food color. Drop rounded spoonfuls on dry sheetpans. Bake 350 deg 8-10 min (or longer), edges are light brown; cool on baking sheets 5 min then wire rack to cool completely. Brush on glaze. stir 2-3 tb lime juice (bit of zest) and 1/4-1/2 c conf, droplet green food color.

How about we trade 11 million illegals for one Marine jailed in Mexico?

BTW, this was also on a FR recipe thread. Here's how to make "key lime" juice from regular Persian limes.

METHOD Juice limes, add lemon juice---1 part l/juice per 4-5 parts lime juice. Add driblets of lemon juice, stir/taste til sufficiently tart.

Works VERY well, and you don't have to buy those hideously expensive bottles of key lime juice.

Look at his face. That's quite a grimace for 5-pound dumbells (I mean the weights, not Obama).

What a sissy!

I’m a recent Costco member and love Key Lime pie...thanks for the tip. BTW Costco salmon is fantastic...grill it on a cedar plank with a little drizzle of real maple syrup...made this way at the Sylvan Lake Lodge in the South Dakota Black Hills.

My wife is a Key Lime Pie snob. Any pie that is made with condensed milk (as is the pie above) is not authentic.

Looks like he's trying to squeeze one out. Must be backed-up.
Everytime he has to enforce a law he gets constipated.

Can’t you just see Olivia Newton John with her headband singing, “Let’s get physical! Physical! I wanna get animal! Animal!” Guy makes me want to vomit.

Key limes and Key lime pies have a very different taste. I had a Key lime tree in my backyard for years in Miami. I make a pretty mean Key lime pie myself. Tastes totally different from regular lime which I have substituted in a pinch a few times. There is no comparison.
