Southern Sweet Tea – #southerncomfort

The best thing from the south is sweet tea on hot days. For the real southern tea they would add saccharin tablets but then we found out about saccharin. Now you can add an 1/8 tsp of baking soda. I think this is a little, no a lot, light on the sugar and maybe the tea bags. Of course it’s up to you so adjust the basic recipe as needed!
3 cups water
2 family-size tea bags
1/2 to 1 cup sugar
7 cups cold water
Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan
Add tea bags
Boil 1 minute
Remove from heat
Cover and steep 10 minutes
Remove and discard tea bags
Add desired amount of sugar, stirring until dissolved
Pour into a 1-gal. container, and add 7 cups cold water
Serve over ice

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
