Does anyone know where to buy key limes in Calgary? I want to make key lime pie for Christmas dinner.

          Sobeys here in Canmore has plenty of them, in little net bags - so i assume Calgary Sobeys have them too.

        If you cannot find key limes look for the jarred key lime juice. That is what most restaurants and people use. Plus, key limes are out of season. The are more a Spring/Summer thing.

          Found bags of them at superstore in southland. Thanks for the tip.

          Took forever to squeeze one cups worth of juice though, so I'll be interested in trying out the canned stuff to save time the next go around.

          Where can I buy the canned stuff from?

            Superstore again, iirc I've found it in the organic/natural food aisle - RW Knudsen brand I think? It's in glass bottles about the same size as minute maid single serve juice bottles.
