 NOTES : Key limes are as different from “regular” limes as peaches are from
 pears. The very definition of a “key lime pie” is a pie made with juice
 from key limes. A pie made with any other kind of lime juice may be tasty,
 but it is NOT a key lime pie!!
 Beware: Some unscrupulous vendors are marketing things like “Key West Lime
 Juice” (Trader Joe’s here in California is one of the guilty). This means
 absolutely nothing; the juice in the bottle is NOT key lime juice; they are
 just trying to fool you with the name. Read the ingredients list -- if it
 doesn't say key lime juice then it isn't key lime juice.
