Key Lime pie with Vin Santo

with fresh-brewed hibiscus tea!

Key Lime pie with vin santo and if you must, freshly brewed jaimica (hibiscus tea) but the star of the show: Cornbread Complete – whether by Jiffy mix or by real – includes just-wilted sweet onion chunks, thumbnail sized sauteed with red-ripe and green jalapeno rings and pork-skin cracklings saved from the last Boston Butt or fresh picnic roast smoked to a chin-drippin’ turn with a choice of honey or butter or both. Buckets of fresh-made tartar sauce: homemade mayonnaise with olive oil, whole egg, minced onion and cornichon and sweet relish, lemon juice with worchestershire and a light dusting of minced dill and parsley. ¬†Optional: Cobb-Corn either boiled, steamed or roasted in-husk with a whole cowherd of butter, slathered on a big ol’e slice of thick white bread well Kosher salted and freshly ground peppered – keeps from watching the S&P fall off and gives you a handy-dandy re-fill place and cob-holder and the well-seasoned bread may serve as dessert!)
