Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Blueberry Lime Iced Tea

When brewing this tea, steep for at least 5 minutes - you want a very strong brew.  DO NOT squeeze the tea bags.  Squeezing causes the bitterness inherent in tea to be released into your beverage.  Fresh or Frozen blueberries can be used for this drink.  Adjust the sugar to your liking and enjoy!

  1 1/2 Cups Blueberries                                                            6 Cups Boiling Water
  1/4 Cup Lime Juice                                                                 6 Tea Bags
  1/2 Cup Sugar                                                                         

Put blueberries and lime juice in a small pot on the stove and bring to a boil.  Boil for about 5 minutes until berries are soft.  Pour into a food mill and process until well juiced.  Mix juice with sugar in a pitcher.  While berries cook, boil water in the microwave.  When water is just boiling, remove from microwave and add tea bags.  Steep for 5 minutes and pour over juice/sugar mixture.  Stir well,  chill and serve over ice.
