You make some big batches of tea!
Congrats on hitting your blog goal!
Alex: Yeppers.Todd: Thanks.
Egads! Does that device actually boil the water? Seems pretty weak. I am wary of gadgets that only do one thing that probably any average kitchen implement can do. Which is why the stockpot's french name is perfect: Faitout, 'do everything'. "Et qu'est cela vous faire au joiurd'hui?" "Je fait tout, ou je fait rien!"
Spawn: I love my stockpot but I didn't want to boil tea every other day in it. But I did buy a second pot because it fits in my sink so well. Far better than my regular stock pot.Kitchen toys are so fun.How's the cooking going?
Spawn: PS: No, it barely warms it. Total crap.
Whack tea maker! I've been a bit low on the cooking this week, fighting off illness. But I have made a big pot of Italian beef stew that I will share soon, and had a hardcore pizza-making dinner with a friend of mine last week ... dough using Greek yoghurt instead of yeast, one pizza with merghez and baked eggs, the other with capers, anchovies, sauteed bell peppers, baked eggplants, artichoke hearts, black olives ... it was hardcore. Good wine, good kitchen team. Did not feel like central PA, for sure.
Ever try Rooibos tea? It's a herbal tea grown here in South Africa.
A stove top pot does seem a much better way to do it. Even a proper old-fashioned kettle. It doesn't take a lot longer than the electric and there's a kind of honesty in the relationship and the greater control we have over it, an anchor to the way we've done things for a large part of human history, and always can whenever we need to.And something polyhedral seems to be missing from Tim's hand...
Spawn: Anytime you want to guest blog over here you just drop me and email and let me know.Everything you made sounds great and I love the idea of Greek yoghurt. I will have to give that a go.Sounds like you had a great cooking time. Those are always fun.Azra: I don't believe that I have. What does it taste like? I love all kinds of tea and I'm open to trying new ones.Thanks for the idea.
Porky: Your comment came through the same time I was leaving one. I agree, stove top pot is the best. Well, I rather love sun tea in the summer, but for the other months ...
My aunt in Virginia does this - she always has sweet tea in her fridge. My kids keep trying to get me to do it in the summertime, but then I forget ;-)
KatieO: Sun tea is SO GOOD. Hope you give it a go sometime. It's num, num, nummy.
It's quite different - that's the only word I can think of :) There are some people who LOVE it and others who don't... as with most things.
Azra: Thanks. I will look for it at Wegmans next time I go.
I love sun tea!I was looking a tea pot yesterday. It said it made 48 oz and a little container for loose tea. I'm still thinking about it...
Jennifer: I love loose tea. Have a great Super Bowl party. Looking forward to seeing what you make.
You must drink a lot of tea! I'm a coffee drinker, but lately I've been trying to cut back on the coffee and drink green tea in the afternoons instead.
I didn't even know there are such things as tea makers!
Susan: Love good green tea.DEZMOND: There's a few different ones on the market. Thought I'd give it a try, but nah, back to big boiling pots for me.
Sun tea is the best! We used to make it all the time. I may have to drag out my sun tea jar this year.
I just use a plug in kettle for tea when I'm brewing it... from the looks of that, I'm wondering what goes where!
Jenn: Woohoo for sun tea.William: I never used a plug in kettle. Sounds pretty neat though.
