Sun Tea


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.  


1 gal. cold water
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.
