Front Porch Tea

Throughout the summer St.Luke's has Lemonade on the Lawn after service. I thought this recipe might be good. I haven't made it. Let me know if any of you try it and what you think. Maybe even some other flavored lemonades would be good.

Front Porch Tea
(From GE Recipes)

Serves 8 - 10


11 cups water, divided into 1, 2 and 8 cup portions
1-cup sugar
2 large family-size tea bags
1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1-tablespoon vanilla
1-tablespoon almond extract
Fresh peach slices


1. In a 1-quart saucepan, combine 1-cup water and sugar.
2. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves to make sugar syrup. Set aside.
3. In a 4-quart (gallon) pitcher, pour 2 cups boiling water over tea bags.
4. Let stand 5 minutes and remove tea bags.
5. Add remaining 8 cups water, sugar syrup, lemonade concentrate, vanilla and almond extract.
6. Serve over ice and garnish with fresh peach slices.

I'm leaving Wednesday for the General Convention in California and the Geranium Farm Luncheon on Saturday. I'll be gone for a week. See ya when I get back. : )
