The Pioneer Woman Cooks! I knew I was going to make it. All I can say is this stuff ROCKS!
Make sure you have a large container. I thought I did but it turns out I didn't. I had to divide my coffee and water between two containers. I started the process about 2:30pm yesterday. I was just going to let it sit for the eight hours Ree recommends in the recipe. Instead, I let it sit overnight. I strained it this morning and refrigerated it. I'm so glad I was gone for awhile today so the coffee mixture could chill. If I would've been home it would have drove me crazy to wait.
This stuff is so delicious! I will definitely try to always have this ready to go in the fridge.
This stuff is so freakin' good! I'm glad I finally tried it!
My husband rarely tries anything I make as far as beverages or baked goods. He only eats what I cook for dinner. That's just because he has no choice: he can't cook. When he came home today, I begged him to take a sip of my iced coffee. He did. He made a yucky face! He has no taste!
Perfect Iced Coffee (from The Pioneer Woman Cooks!)
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.
