[Martha’s mother, Velvie, created this recipe.
They lived by an orange grove, and Martha’s mother would create special
recipes from the available seasonal fruit. “Key limes were hard to come
by so Mama would make do with oranges. I’ve learned to love her orange pie
recipe--even more than any key lime pie,” notes Martha.]
