Cooking Thursday6:02 AM
Good morning everyone.
Here I thought that once we were done with the testing last week, this week would be much easier and quieter. Ummmmm, nope haven't had much of a chance to do anything, I haven't even had a chance to go buy and say hi to the HHM participants.
I will try to do that this morning....try being the key word here.
Anyway, onto today's recipe:
Today I'm sharing the Iced Mint Tea recipe. Hope you get a chance to try it :)
Iced Mint Tea4 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice (I use fresh lemons)
4 tea bags
About a cup of loosely packed mint leaves (I use a mix of spearmint and peppermint)
4 cups of cold water
You can do it on the stove, but I make mine in the microwave just to be quicker.
Using my Pampered Chef mixing bowl, I add the first 4 cups of water, pop it in the microwave for about 6 minutes or until boiling hot. Remove, and add in the cup of sugar. Stir it up until the sugar is dissolved.
Then add the tea bags, lemon juice and mint leaves.
Pop the lid on and let it sit for an hour.
Remove the tea bags from the water and discard. Strain the tea mixture into a 2 Quart pitcher. Stir in the 4 cups of cold water, then cover and refrigerate for another hour or so.
Pour into mason jars and add in a few ice cubes and a small leaf of peppermint, if you wish Enjoy!!!
