All juiced up

Just another in the [getting longer by the day] list of things I didn’t know: the juice of key limes can be used pretty much interchangeably with regular lime juice.

I’d always thought key limes were “special” somehow — sweeter, maybe – associated as they are with key lime pie. Turns out they are different than their Tahitian or Persian confreres: they’re thicker skinned, with more intensely flavored flesh. I shouldn’t have underestimated their mini proportions, either — they yield a heck of a lot of juice.

Which makes them more than a fitting contender for an avocado smash up. Bring on the tortillas.

    It’s winter here, and limes are one the things that make it all worthwhile! But even if we didn’t ahave the real thing I think your lovely photo might make a pretty good substitute!
