Southern Sweet Iced Tea Made in A French Press

Southern Iced Sweet Tea Made in a French Press a quick and easy way to make tea using tea bags or loose tea since it strains automatically after steeping.  A French press is not just for coffee; it is so adaptable even for Southern sweet tea. I love sweet tea, and the stronger, the better.  When I think of a French press, I think of making strong coffee, but one day I thought, why not tea. I have used my French press to make my tea for the last couple of years.  I pour the boiling water over the tea bags, let them steep for 4 or 5 minutes, and pour in my tea pitcher with a cup of sugar.   This summer, though, I have been adding the sugar to the French press, pouring the hot water over it, giving it a couple of stirs, adding the tea bags, and then pushing the plunger down just below the water to steep, oh my so good.

Fabulous Watermelon Juice Recipe

Fabulous fresh Watermelon Juice, naturally sweet, refreshing chunks of watermelon that yield a superb juice, perfect on a hot summer day.    The ingredients are simple, only one, watermelon.   Spice it up with a rub of a cut side of lime on the rim of the glass and dip in the spicy Tajin, tasty. Watermelon juice is a juice I have expectations making each summer.  After spending time in Mexico on a mission trip, watermelon juice became a favorite.  I remember it was the first thing I thought about on my way to eating breakfast.   I remember most that the watermelon juice was served at room temperature, and it didn't bother me at all.  The vibrant flavor of the watermelon was delightful.
