I'll be making a cake that calls for lime curd with this product, and I'm expecting the curd will turn out well. After I've actually made the cake, I will post my taste-test results.
The label instructions tell you to immediately put the bottle(s) in the refrigerator upon receiving the product, NOT after you've opened the bottle, which I did. Since this product does not have preservatives, I need to find out how long the juice is good.
**UPDATE: I searched Nellie and Joe's website FAQ's and found the following helpful information:
1. How long is the juice good?
The juice is guaranteed up to the “Best By” date printed on the neck of the bottle. You should refrigerate the container after purchase, and we do not recommend using after the “Best By” date.
I received the juice on 04/10, and the "Best By" date on both bottles is December 15, 2016. So, there is plenty of time for all those key-lime recipes I plan to make!
2. The juice was not refrigerated when I purchased it, so why do I have to refrigerate it now?
While the juice is shelf-stable until opened, refrigerating the product after purchase will dramatically slow down the darkening of the juice.
3. The juice is starting to turn brown. What does that mean?Read more ›
I made the pie and it taste just like the piece we had in Florida - recipe is on the back of the bottle!
Over the years we have tried to replicate the great taste of those local pies, and have found that this Nellie and Joe's product comes as close as one can get without buying the key limes and squeezing them ourself! It has no preservatives, so you really need to put it in the refrigerator upon delivery and use it sooner than later.
Our favorite recipe is fairly traditional; 3 beaten egg yolks, 14oz sweetened condensed milk, and 1/2 cup of this key lime juice whisked and then poured into a graham cracker crust. We will bake the pie at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes and then let it cool before chilling it in the refrigerator for serving.
We like to top off each serving with two things -- a dollop of vanilla whipped cream (1/4 pint whipping cream, one tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, all whipped together fairly stiffly) and then a light coating of lime zest over the pie and the whipped cream. It not only tastes great but it looks good too.
It is not hard to find the regular Key West Lime Juice around here, but that stuff is not the same as the 100% Key Lime Juice product. We are very glad that the 100% key lime juice is available here and recommend that you give Nellie and Joe's 100% Key Lime Juice a try if you are in the mood for a delicious key lime pie.
Go for it.
