Recipe of the Month: Sweet Tea

1 Kings 8:36 Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

Oh sure, we could have posted a recipe of some kind of food, but we thought we would give it a twist this month.

We all need a little something to wash all the good food down with so we decided to share our sweet tea recipe!

Whether your sharing it with family or friends or taking to a potluck you can’t go wrong with sweet tea!

I mean, really, who doesn’t love sweet tea???!!!???

Hope you enjoy this!

Tea

We do love us some sweet tea our homes, and we drink a lot of it.

I, Dana,  make a fresh gallon at least every other day.

I always get compliments on my tea, don’t really know why, I don’t do anything special, I just make it.

I think the secret lies in the amount sugar you add, like sugar is a big secret since it’s been around for ages and ages!!

Anyway, I get lots of request on how make it so good, (LOL), so I thought I would share it with everyone!

INGREDIENTS

1 gallon size Lipton tea bag or 3 regular size Lipton tea bags

2 cups sugar

Ice cubes

Fill a medium sauce pan with water and bring to a boil.

Turn off the heat and drop in the tea bag.  Allow tea to steep for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour the 2 cups of sugar in a gallon size tea pitcher.

Gently swirl the tea bag around in the water to release the flavor of the tea. While holding the bag in the sauce pan, pour tea into pitcher.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.

Leave the tea bag in the pan and fill the pan with fresh cold water and pour into pitcher.

Remove tea bag and fill pan with ice cubes and pour into pitcher.  Stir until almost all the ice is dissolved.

Finish filling the pitcher with fresh water. Fill a mason jar with ice and pour yourself a glass of cold iced tea!

Garnish with lemon if you wish.  I like lemon if I am just going to be enjoying it as a refreshing beverage.

But not so much if I am washing down my food with my tea!
