The suburban farm is showering us with a bountiful harvest at the moment. Our first 3 eggs from our chickens and an "orchard" teeming with fruit. I use the term orchard loosely as there are 5 citrus trees randomly plated about the place, but it all works with the goal of creating our suburban farm right? We have more limes than we know what to do with. We are juicing them, freezing them, and baking them. One of our all time favorite treats is the key lime pie out of the Dinosaur Bar B Que cookbook.
18 graham crackers (granitas are fine)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
5 tbl melted butter
Process crackers into a fine crumb. Mix in the remaining ingredients and press evenly into a pie plate. Put aside.
4 egg yolks lightly beaten
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp grated lime zest
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Whisk together the above ingredients and pour into crust. Bake at 350/170 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the centre has just set.
My husbands is up to his jarring tricks again with the grapefruits. Will share his marmalade when he's done. I do love a man who preserves.
How cute are those 2 little blondies.
