My Handyman hates when I throw big jars away, or medium size jars, or even small jars. He sees the jar as a potential iced tea glass.
So, what else to do with his large empty pickle jar? After thoroughly cleaning and airing out the jar to get rid of the pickle taste, I filled the jar with water, added a couple of tea bags and set it outside in the hot sun. A few hours later I had Sun Tea.
2 family size tea bags
Place cold water in large glass jar. Add tea bags. Close lid and loosen a little. Put in sun until water is dark, 3 – 5 hours. Remove tea bags, sweeten with sugar to taste. Stir well. Pour over a tall glass of ice. Optional, garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
