Should I add food coloring to my key lime pie?

pharmnerd | Sep 10, 2008 03:41 PM

I use a Cook's illustrated recipe for key lime pie (actually calls for regular limes instead) and it tastes good but barely has a tinge of green. Is this typical? Basically, whisk lime zest w/ egg yolks before adding condensed milk and lime juice. I've never used food coloring before, but would food coloring make it look better or worse?
