Lime Sauce

  I enjoy your site very much. I'm looking for a homemade aged lime 
juice/pepper condiment sauce. I believe it was called Old Limey, or Old 
Salty. It was a nautical name. Anyway, it became stronger as it aged , until 
it was very potent stuff. Thanks for your help.     Linda

Hi Linda,

I had no success with this. I could not locate anything called "Old Limey" or "Old Salty", or anything that quite fit your description of lime and pepper.

I have a somewhat similar recipe on my site. However, it is lime and salt, not lime and pepper. It's called "Old Key Sour Sauce".

See here and below: Old Key Sour Sauce


Old Florida Keys Sour Sauce Recipe

2 cups lime juice
1 Tblsp salt

Strain the juice thru cheesecloth in a funnel into a clean bottle. Add salt,shake 
the bottle and tie a squeeze of clean cloth over the top of the bottle. Let the 
sauce age in dark cupboard for 6-8 weeks. It should have an acid salty flavor with 
the bite on the tongue.Cork the bottle and sauce keeps indefinitely. There is no 
need to refrigerate,the sauce,and the older it gets,the better. Can be splashed on 

Jerk Chicken Chili

I had this at Wintzell's Oyster house in Montgomery, AL

Hello Donald,

Wintzellís Oyster House is a chain consisting of about ten locations, mostly in Alabama. They have a website at: Wintzell's I did not have any success finding Wintzellís recipe or a recipe claiming to be a copycat of theirs. However, there are other jerk chicken chili recipes. See these:

Some of the jerk chicken chili recipes on the web call for habanero or Scotch bonnet peppers, and others call for jalapenos. I donít know which Wintzellís uses, but if they use an authentic Jamaican recipe as they claim, then I would try recipes with habaneros or Scotch bonnet chiles first.

Hi my name is Keyba. I recently found a recipe I've been looking for, for ten years on your web page. 
I told a friend about and now I need to look for a recipe for her. It was back in the late 80s in 
los Angeles at audubon Jr High school. It was called Cinnamon Twist. Delicious. 
If you could locate that recipe please thank you. 

Hi Keyba,

I wish that I could help, but I canít find even a mention of these. Iíll post this on my site in case a reader can help.

There are some cinnamon roll recipes from schools - one from the LA Times, here:
