Once again, I am linking up to Tuesday at the Table over at A Quilter's Table, make sure to jump over there and visit everyone's great recipes and blogs! For an extra treat, click on the photo below, which will take you to the Southern Living website, where you will learn how to deep fry sweet tea! It actually seems like it would taste pretty darn good!
Marci's Southern Sweet Iced Tea
This recipe is for a full two quart pitcher. Easily 8-12 servings.
4 single serve black tea bags (decaf or regular)
1 cup sugar
In a medium sauce pan boil around 4-6 cups of water. The amount of water does not need to be an exact amount. Once the water comes to a roiling boil, drop in the four tea bags, stir, and remove from heat. Let the tea bags steep for 10-12 minutes and no longer. Remove tea bags and discard. In a two quart pitcher, add 1 cup of sugar, and carefully pour the tea into the pitcher. Stir until the sugar is well dissolved into the tea. Add cold water to fill the pitcher. Stir well. Serve over ice.
If you have access to fresh mint leaves, add a few to the glass and crush slightly. Enjoy!
