I found this great iced coffee recipe on Pinterest, via Pioneer Woman. I changed a few things, and wanted to share with the other java junkies out there.
First of all, I did a smaller amount, 3 quarts of water plus 6 ounces of coffee. I didn't use expensive stuff, but did use Dark Roast coffee. I can't store 2 gallons of coffee in my fridge. Besides, even I don't drink that much coffee!
My trusty coffee cone really helped with the process. I tried the paper towels in the metal strainer as Ree recommended, but it made a big mess for me. So, I strained the steeped brew through a regular cone filter in my ceramic cone, placed inside the metal strainer.
So much easier and neater! I did use about 4 filters this way, but ended up with 2.5 quarts of primo iced coffee juice. And, I didn't have to fiddle with pushing the coffee through the strainer. Gravity in this case was my friend.
Has anyone else tried this recipe?
