Ingredient Info
Key limes originated from Key West, Florida, but are also grown in Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America. They are small limes with a thin skin, yellowish-green color and delicate tart flavor.
Ingredient Substitution
If you cannot find Key lime juice, regular Persian lime juice can be used but decrease the amount in the filling to 3/4 cup.
