Wonderful for bringing out the flavor of other foods, limes, while similar to lemons, have their own distinctive citrus flavor. Lime juice even has more acid and natural sugar content than its close cousin lemon juice. While some limes, known as sweet limes, contain little citric acid, the tart variety will give you the most nutritional bang for your buck.

Granny’s Apple Pie
1.5 (15 ounce) packages refrigerated pie crusts, divided
6 medium granny smith apples, peeled and sliced (about 6 cups)
1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
3⁄4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Unroll and stack 2 pie crusts; gently roll or press together.
- Fit pastry into a 9 inch deep-dish pie plate.
- Toss together apples and lemon juice in a large bowl.
- Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and next 3 ingredients; sprinkle over apple mixture and toss to coat.
- Spoon into prepared pie crust.
- Unroll and place remaining pie crust over filling.
- Fold edges under, and crimp; cut slits in top for steam to escape. (I also cover the crimped edges of my crust with foil to prevent burning).
- Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees, and bake for 30-35 minutes.
