Star Fruit Pie

Star Fruit right off the Tree
Star Fruit Cut Up
I juiced some Star Fruit in a little juicer I bought at a thrift store here in Florida and decided to make a Pie similar to a Key Lime Pie recipe only substituting the Star Fruit I got from a neighbor's tree here in Florida. It has a very subtle sweet flavor and I decided it might be perfect in a pie.
Combine sugar, graham crackers, and melted butter
into a pie plate and press lightly 

2 c. crushed graham crackers
5 Tbsp. white sugar
5 Tbsps. Butter melted
3 eggs
1/2 c. star fruit juice
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
Beat two Egg Whites until Stiff

Add 2 egg yolks and 1 whole egg along with condensed milk and star fruit juice,
mix well and then fold in stiff egg whites

Bake Crust for 5 minutes in 325 degree 
then pour in Milk Star Fruit Mix

Bake for 20-25 minutes

Serve with Whipped Cream and decorate with a slice of Star Fruit

I served this after a wonderful Salmon Dinner last night and it was hugely successful! I would make this again.
