  Iced Tea
As made by all the great cooks in Yadkin County, North Carolina.

* 6 family-sized bags of Orange Pekoe tea
* 1 1/2 cups sugar
* 2 cups boiling water

"You get a little porcelain pan and put in about 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil and remove from the heat. Stir in the sugar. Then throw in the tea bags and let sit until cool. Remove the tea bags. Pour the liquid into a glass container and add cold water to bring to a gallon." Serve in tall glasses over ice with a lemon wedge.

If the tea is cloudy, throw it away before anyone can see it and start over. This time, follow the instructions!
