Have a Cuppa Tea
Every 2 months or so on this blog, we take a break & share a recipe instead of talking about art. Last time Wolfe3D shared his pizza recipe in my first collaboration. The time before that, I shared my favorite vegan cake recipe Would you like to share a recipe in a future blog post? Let me know!
This week, we’re making Plum Tea!
This recipe is delicious hot or iced.
- 4 ripe plums
- 1 cup sugar – any kind
- 1 cup water
- Lots of ice
- Your favorite tea*
*I used Apricot Medley (#NotSponsored) this time, but have made this recipe in the past with many different herbal & black teas. Part of the fun of this recipe is getting to experiment with whatever tea you like!
Stem, pit, & quarter 4 plums. You do not need to peel them. If the plums are very small, you only need to cut them in half- but you may need 5-6 plums to get the same results.
Put the plums into a tall pot with 1 cup of water & 1 cup of sugar.
Bring to a boil, remove pot from heat, & let sit, covered, for 20 min.
Uncover, remove plums, & let the simple syrup cool.
Pass the time by eating the extra-delicious plums on fruit salad, granola, ice cream, etc. They will keep in the fridge for at least a day, maybe longer- but they get eaten so fast in this house I’ve never managed to find out how long!
Fill ½ of a pitcher with ice, then fill ⅓ of the pitcher with syrup
- Fill the rest of the pitcher with your favorite iced tea.
I love that this one recipe makes both drinks & snacks, with minimal effort. The hardest part is waiting for the syrup to cool!
