|Many of you know how much I love to share recipes from newsletter cookbooks. I’ll spare you the “Jellied Tuna” and just outline the “Frozen Pimento Cheese Salad” (pimento cheese, mayonnaise, marshmallow, pineapple –> freezer). The cookbook is mostly desserts, but here’s an interesting drink:
Boil 6 quarts of water with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cloves in a cloth bag.
Tie 5 teaspoons of Orange Pekoe tea in a loose cheesecloth bag, add to boiling water, remove from fire and cover, let stand 5 minutes.
Remove spices and tea and add juice of 6 oranges and 3 lemons, which has been carefully strained.
Add about 1-1/2 pounds of sugar. Keep hot until served.

(I actually think that could make a good iced tea, also!)
