The greening of the lime meringue pie

The South African branch of the family, currently London-based, is visiting, so we had pie. Lime meringue pie, served with the last of our Alpine garden strawberries [raspberries!] from last September.

Teams sometimes come up with better ideas than individuals, and sometimes they don't. The hovering team in the kitchen agreed, as I was about to pour the pale filling into the baked crust, that a lime pie should be green. So we greened it, using the coloring generally reserved for Easter eggs.

It tasted delicious and the pie disappeared in 15 minutes, but we all agreed that it was confusing to eat lime and think kiwi - we didn't get the shade of green quite right.

We will just have to bake another one.

Even if it is kiwi green, it still looks really, really good.
