Zingy and sweet: Ed’s Key Lime Pie (recipe)

Key lime pie is an almost magical combination of thick and dangerously decadent condensed milk with eggs and key lime juice. Although it is rich and sinful, it somehow seems light enough to have after a rather large meal. You can replace the sour cream with yogurt if you are so inclined. People say bad things about sour cream. It’s sad.

The weed is in the graham cracker crust of this dessert. I first came across this recipe in cooking school, and I have yet to find a better version. I like lots of filling, and this makes a thick and satisfying piece of pie. You can probably find key limes in a fancy store and pay a ton of money for them, squeeze them for an hour and have a great pie. You can also buy a bottle of key lime juice, do nothing but pour and have a great pie. Totally your call.

I am working on some key lime bars for my medibles company, LaurieandMaryJane. Some riff on this amazing recipe. Maybe a key lime and coconut bar. And of course we did not add cannabutter to this recipe during school hours. After school? Sure.

The cannabutter in the crust was made from Durban Poison. This sativa got rave reviews from my Nectar buddy Jeff, and it is quite delightful. It was described as a clear-headed, potent high, and that’s a great explanation. I urge you to save a piece of pie to eat when you are under the influence. One of life’s great pleasures. Oh, I made garlic bread with the cannabutter from this weed, and served it with a bowl of pasta with an anchovy, walnuts, broccoli and canna-olive oil sauce. Yum.

The new cannabis lexicon: Do you know the difference between shatter and wax? Fatties and pinners? We’ve got all the lingo, from A-Z.
