This is me:
So here’s an amazing, jfeldt tested, Pioneer Woman recipe for Iced Coffee.
- 1 pound Ground Coffee (good, Rich Roast)
- 8 quarts Cold Water
- Half-and-half (healthy Splash Per Serving)
- Sweetened Condensed Milk (2-3 Tablespoons Per Serving)
- Note: Can Use Skim Milk, 2% Milk, Whole Milk, Sugar, Artificial Sweeteners, Syrups…adapt To Your Liking!
(Adapted from Imbibe Magazine)
In a large container, mix ground coffee with water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.
Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and set over a pitcher or other container. Pour coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all liquid to run through. Discard grounds.
Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.
To make iced coffee, pack a glass full of ice cubes. Fill glass 2/3 full with coffee liquid. Add healthy splash of half-and-half. Add 2-3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (can use plain sugar instead) and stir to combine. Taste and adjust half-and-half and/or sweetened condensed milk as needed.
In my haste to make this yesterday, I forgot a slightly important ingredient. I must have been flustered after trying to find shops open on a bank holiday that were willing to sell me a bowl large enough to fit 32 cups of water. I gave up, halved the recipe, and went with 16. I completely forgot to make ice. So This morning, I am enjoying a lovely Cold Coffee, Vietnamese style.
I love you all, see how agreeable a gluttonous amount of snooze gets me?
