PF60, what a great idea to try it with limes. I think lemons and limes are the only foods I have ever know of where they can always be interchanged between the two. I do not think I have ever seen an application where one would work, but the other would not.
I just prefer the taste of limes to lemons for most things and am forever trying new ways and recipes with limes. I made wonderful Lime Marmalade and Lime Curd. So when I heard of Lemoncello and found a recipe for it, it was a natural substitution!

Since there is no such thing as a Key Lemon...but a really good lemon pie can be made. It doesn't HAVE to have meringue on it. Some good meyer lemons could be a good sub for the key limes.

Besides, if you make meringue, you are left wondering what to do with your egg yolks, some good ideas on that thread over there>>>>
