The Original Key West Lime Juice has pretty simple ingredients—the pure, all natural juice of fresh key limes with no additives and no preservatives. And no, there is no heat (heat level of Original Key West Key Lime Juice is indeed 0), because as I said there are no added ingredients, and that includes hot peppers.

Like they say here in Key West, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, and wherever people are enjoying a cocktail, those drinks will taste a whole lot better with the Original Kew West Key Lime Juice. You can take this advice to the bank, because I know what I’m talking about when it comes to hot sauce, but I really know what I’m talking about when it comes to cocktails. (Don’t get me wrong, we actually do get some work done here at Peppers of Key West, but hey, it is Key West after all.)

So why do I stock a product at Peppers of Key West and here on Pepper Central that doesn’t have any kick? Well if I really have to answer that question, you just might need a kick. C’mon—the Original Key West Key Lime Juice is a local product, bottled right here in Key West. And it’s not just that Peppers of Key West supports the local economy (we’re part of the local economy so of course I support it). The Original Key West Key Lime Juice is a great product—that’s why I carry it.

Now, if you think that Key Limes are indigenous to the Florida Keys, you would be wrong. They originated in Asia. But yes, they do grow here—you can buy Key Lime trees to plant in your yard at the local Home Depot. But no, they are no longer grown here commercially since the land is too damn expensive down here for anyone to afford a Key Lime orchard. That said, Key Limes are different than the big, fat limes you get up north. Key Limes are smaller, more acidic—and way more flavorful.

The Original Key West Key Lime juice is a staple for so many different things. First of all, in my humble opinion, if you don’t make your margaritas with the Original Key West Key Lime Juice, Jimmy Buffet would not come to your party, and you do not qualify to call yourself a Parrot Head. Same thing applies to Key Lime Pie, which, if not made with The Original Key West Key Lime Juice, is not really a Key Lime Pie. You could call it a Big Fat Lime Pie, or a Northern Lime Pie, but not a Key Lime Pie.

By the way, you don’t need to bake a Key Lime Pie. It’s just The Original Key West Key Lime Juice, egg yolks and sweetened, condensed milk. (Always use the sweetened version.) If you want to do the true Conch version, use the leftover egg whites to whip up a meringue topping. That’s it. (For detailed instructions, check out the recipe section here on Pepper Central.)
