Dori Sanders – Best Iced Tea Ever and Flash Frozen Peaches

Today, I am featuring two more recipes from Dori Sanders’ Country Cooking Cookbook.  The first recipe is for Best Iced Tea Ever given to Dori by her cousin, Lottie.  I think you have to be really brave to say it is the best iced tea because I think many families in the South take pride in having a family member that makes the best iced tea ever.  I do like Mr. D’s tea but I will say the best iced tea I ever had was at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House in Savannah, Georgia.

I do like Dori’s recipe and I will try her hint in the first paragraph about removing the rind from the lemon before squeezing the juice.  We are experiencing an extreme heat wave right now and just the thought of this wonderful iced tea sounds so refreshing.

I am looking forward to the peach season beginning here soon and I think the idea of flash freezing peaches is wonderful.  I know I have had a few peaches left over before and wanted to do something with them to preserve them but had no idea how to do that.  I do flash freeze a few berries for winter and now I know I can do the same thing with peaches.  I am not going to doubt the advice of a peach farmer that runs a fruit stand.

I hope you have enjoyed the recipes and hints from Dori.  Mr. D and I are hoping that we will be able to take a road trip to Dori’s family farm stand sometime over the summer.  It is less than two hours from our house to farm.

So Does That Mean I Am Southern because I love Dori Sanders, Peaches and Summertime?  I certainly hope so.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love peaches too. It’s so rare to find peaches that smell like peaches I remember from the tree next door in my childhood. I didn’t make it to Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House my one time in Savannah – the wait was hours long. But curiously, I was just thinking this very morning that MKL and I should take a trip there. Hugs!

  2. Oh and our peach trees are hanging to the ground filled with peaches. We have been eating them with vanilla ice cream.
