|Cold Brewed Iced Coffee….amazing!!|
Since we are in the middle of summer, and the weather has been quite hot, it sounded like a perfect time to make iced coffee! Besides, now my curiosity was piqued!
|I love the way the half and half swirls into the coffee|
My husband loved this coffee! He has been enjoying a glass or two daily. He said it was as good as the stuff you get from the fancy coffee shops. So, if you love your coffee, and while we’re still in the midst of summer, give this one a try! You won’t be sorry!
|Choose a rich strong coffee|
|Add the grounds to the container, then add the water, and stir….cover and leave for at least 8 hours to steep|
|Strain the coffee concentrate into another clean container|
|Coffee delight…would you like me to pour you a glass?|
This makes a wonderful coffee “concentrate” to keep in your fridge: iced coffee anyone?
8 oz. Ground Coffee (a good, Rich Roast)
4 quarts Cold Water
Half-and-half…I used fat free Half and Half, or any Milk that you choose. Skim, 2%, Whole…the choice is yours.
Sweeten to your taste
(Adapted from Imbibe Magazine and the Pioneer Women)
Place the coffee grounds in a large container, pour four quarts of cold water over the grounds, and stir to moisten everything. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.
Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and set over a pitcher or other container. Pour coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all liquid to run through. Discard grounds.
Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool for several hours. Now it’s time to enjoy!
To make iced coffee, pack a glass full of ice cubes. Fill glass ⅔ full with coffee liquid. Add a generous splash of half-and-half, or whatever milk you choose to use, sweeten, then enjoy!!
Thank you Christine!
