I love to make homemade iced tea. It is so easy, economical and free of all the crap added to commercially made stuff. My iced tea recipe has only 2 ingredients: water, and tea. Lemon or sugar can be added to taste.

Simply boil the water, and add several tea bags, and it allow it to steep. Make sure it cools fully before refrigerating, or it will get cloudy. Remove the tea bags before storing to avoid the tea from tasting bitter.

Pretty simple, and hardly worth a full blown post. So what’s the big deal? The little trick I use to keep the boiling hot water from cracking the glass pitcher.

Insert a large metal mixing spoon into the pitcher before pouring the hot water in. The metal spoon will absorb some of the heat, preventing the glass from breaking.

Easy. Simple. Great to know.
