  amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 
5   eggs -- Separated
3/4 cup  Sugar
1/3 cup  Key Lime Juice
1 Tbsp  Butter
1/4 cup  Sugar (For Meringue)
1   9 Inch Pie Shell -- Baked
 
Separate eggs into three bowls-- 5 yolks in one bowl, 2 egg whites in another, 
and 3 egg whites in the third. This is the most important step in the whole 
operation. Cream the egg yolks, add 3/4 cup sugar and lime juice and mix 
thoroughly. Cook over low heat until thick, add butter and remove from heat. Let 
cool slightly. Meanwhile beat 2 egg whites until stiff, then fold into cooled 
lime mixture. Fill pie shell. Beat other whites until stiff. Beat in 1/4 cup 
sugar. Pile meringue on top of lime filling and bake at 325 degrees for 15 
minutes.

NOTES : Please keep Jessie's story intact and with his recipe. In memory of 
Jessie and all who have died. 
 
Several years ago I treated a young man from Key West, Fl. who was dying of 
AIDS. A couple of weeks before he died, he gave me his 75 year old family recipe 
for Key Lime Pie. He explained that most Key Lime Pie recipes use condensed 
milk. Even restaurants in Key West serve Key Lime Pie made with condensed milk. 
Jessie was disdainful of this version. His family recipe, passed from generation 
to generation, does not use condensed milk. Jessie claimed it is the only 
authentic Key Lime Pie recipe. So in memory of Jessie, I offer it to you.
