Ever since my husband and I were married all he ever talked about was Ms. June's Key Lime Pie. He would try others and compare them, not a pretty site. After Ms. June passed I was able to get her recipe from her son and made it for the first time. My husband said that he thought it was even better than he remembered. This can be time consuming sqeezing out all that lime juice but it is well worth the effort. No wonder she only made once or twice a year. This can be frozen without the meringue and served later. I hope that you all enjoy.
