Nellie & Joe's Famous Lime Juice
The juice is starting to turn brown, what does that mean?
This is a normal occurrence that takes place in citrus products. Although refrigerating the product will dramatically slow down the browning process, our products are all natural and have a “Best By” date imprinted on the bottle. If on the West Coast, please call.
How long is the juice good?
The juice is good up to the "Best By" date stamped on the bottle as long as it is refrigerated.
What is the conversion of 1 key lime to your juice?
1-2 tablespoons.
What is the conversion of 1 regular lime?
2-3 tablespoons.
Can I freeze the juice?
Yes, as long as you leave enough space for the liquid to expand.
For how long can I freeze it?
Indefinitely, but preferably no more than one year.
The juice was not refrigerated when I purchased it, why do I have to refrigerate it now?
The juice is good for up to 8 months without refrigeration.
The recipe on your bottle says to only bake it for 15 minutes, is that enough to cook the egg?
Yes, the acidity of the lime juice also cooks the egg. Therefore this is just a comfort baking time.
I baked your pie but it won't set?
There's a couple of things that can commonly happen. First, check that you use sweetened condensed milk not evaporated milk. The second is a mis-pour of the lime juice. If these are not the case, please call us at 1-800-LIMEPIE so that we can help you troubleshoot.
I baked your pie but it didn't fill the crust?
Our recipe is intended for the consumer to then top with whipped cream or meringue. You may also double-up the recipe, which will fit perfectly in the crust without additional bake time.
I want to double the recipe, do I need to double the baking time?
No, you can bake the pie at the same time since the acidity of the lime juice helps cook the pie as well.
I bought your juice but cannot find the key lime pie recipe?
Please confirm that you purchased a bottle of the Key West Lime Juice since we also make Key West Lemon Juice and 100% Key Lime Juice.
I made my own crust. Do I need to bake it or just bake it with the pie filling?
You should bake your crust per your recipe instructions & then fill it & bake it for 15 minutes.
If the juice is past its "best by" date, is it still okay to use?
We do not recommend using our products past their best by dates.
