 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      2/3  cup           sugar
    1                    unflavored gelatin
    1      cup           water
    2      teaspoons     lime peel -- grated
      1/4  cup           lime juice
    3      drops         green food color -- optional
    4                    egg whites
      1/2  teaspoon      cream of tartar
    4                    egg yolks
    1      cup           2% lowfat milk
      1/4  cup           sugar
    2      tablespoons   orange juice, frozen concentrate
                         lime slice -- for garnish
 
 In small saucepan, stir together sugar and gelatin.  Stir in water.  Cook
 over medium heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved, about 5
 minutes.  Stir in peel, juice and food color, if desired, until blended.
  Chill, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds when dropped from a
 spoon.
 
 In small mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar at high speed just
 until whites no longer slip when bowl is tilted.  Gently, but thoroughly,
 fold gelatin mixture into whites.  Pour into 1-quart mold or 4 (8 to
 10-ounce) dessert dishes.  Chill until firm, several hours or overnight.
  Just before serving, unmold onto dessert plate (s).
  
 To make Orange Custard Sauce:
 In small saucepan, beat together egg yolks, milk and sugar.  Cook over low
 heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal
 spoon and reaches 160F degrees.  Remove from heat.  Stir in orange juice
 concentrate.  Cool quickly by setting pan in bowl of ice or cold water and
 stirring for a few minutes.  Cover and chill thoroughly.  Spoon sauce around
 rim of plate (s) or pass sauce.  Garnish with lime slices, if desired.
