Conch Republic vs the US

In 1982 the US blocked citizens from the Keys from going onto the mainland. The Conch Republic was born. So during this week there have been Conch Republic celebrations all over town. Yesterday was the War between the Conch Republic and the US Customs/Coast Guard. Here's a link to some of the photos I took.

One of the events was a 7' Key Lime Pie made from the original recipe. It was delicious. Theda and I shared a piece. Funds raised from the pie were going to cancer research.

The burner was used to brown the meringue.

That pie looked good, I might have had to trip and fall face first in there, LOL.

Looks like another fun day in paradise. That key lime pie looks terrific - it's my favorite pie. I would like to make one from the original recipe, but not sure where to get the correct limes.
