SWEET ICED TEA RECIPE
Personally, I don't like my tea sweet, but I have Southern friends who swear by it, so here goes:
2 quarts boiling water
1-2 cups sugar
4 family-size tea bags
2 quarts cold water
To make 1 gallon of sweet iced tea, boil 2 quarts water. Turn off burner and pour in 1-2 cups sugar. Stir until the water turns clear. Throw in 4 family-size (quart-size) tea bags and steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and let hot tea cool. Pour in gallon-size glass pitcher or plastic jug. Make sure your containers can withstand hot liquids. Fill the rest of the gallon container with cold water. Add ice if you want. Refrigerate and serve cold!
While you're making it, you might as well listen to this Anita Renfroe song about Big 'Ole Sweet Iced Tea!
