Back in the 1800s, Key West sponge fishermen, called “hookers” by the locals, kept limes on board simply to prevent sickness. They’d mix the juice with sweetened condensed milk, sometimes with wild bird or maybe sea turtle eggs. They’d pour the sweet-tangy mixture over stale Cuban bread and leave it in the sun for a bit to set. It's an old tale the wives of the sponge fishermen fancied up the treat by baking it in a pie crust. But it remained the modest dessert of the working class until Sarah Jane Lowe Curry, the daughter-in-law of Florida’s first millionaire, started serving it to the kids who came to her house. They called her Aunt Sally, and she’s the mother of the Key lime pie we know today. In those days they called it lime pie. Indulge your senses with the scent of a Fresh Baked Key Lime Pie.
