Sun Tea

If you’ve never had sun tea, you’re missing out! We had sun tea nearly every day when I was a kid, and it was great. All you need is a gallon-sized glass container (don’t use plastic) and five or six tea bags. I found a great gallon-sized Ball Jar with a wire-bale lid and metal spigot for only $20 (available at Linens N Things: http://www.lnt.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1763602&cp&sr=1&origkw=ball+jar&kw=ball+jar&parentPage=search). Fill the jar with water, toss in the teabags, and set the jar in the sun for a day. Halfway through the day, throw in some lemon slices or mint leaves if you like, and add as much sugar or honey as you prefer. By evening, your tea will be fully steeped and ready to drink. Serve it over ice in a tall glass and enjoy your evening!
