Southern Hospitali-Tea and a Cookbook Package Giveaway!

Hey all!  Long time no see!  I'll have to do a post regarding all the happenings around the homestead soon!  One of them will be our newest addition!  If you've been following along over at Instagram (@OldHouseHomestead) or Facebook then you'll be in the know.

I have a few kiddos that are helpful in the kitchen and there's talk of them writing some blog posts soon so maybe you'll see their work here!

The kind folks over at Gooseberry Patch have given me a copy of their Slow Cooker Christmas Favorites cook book and their Good For You Everyday Meals to give away!  (Details are down yonder.)



Here's a recipe and tip from the Christmas cookbook that I'm going to try for Thanksgiving!

Southern Hospitali-Tea

6 c. boiling water
4 black tea bags
4-inch cinnamon stick
1 c. orange juice
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. lemon juice

Place tea bags and cinnamon stick in a heat-proof pitcher or bowl. Pour in boiling water; cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  Strain tea into a slow cooker, discarding tea bags and cinnamon stick.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Cover and cook on low setting for 3 to 4 hours. Makes 6 to 8 servings.



*TIP*
Don't toss that lemon or orange half after it's been juiced!  Wrap it and store in the freezer, and it'll be ready to grate whenever a recipe calls for fresh citrus zest.


Come back soon for another yummy recipe that is a family favorite and in this awesome cookbook!

Don't forget about our coupon code that I mention HERE

My favorite holiday beverage is Hot Chocolate.....I make a big batch in the slow cooker to have it available all day....with bowls of marshmallows, marshmallow cream, chocolate curls, candy canes for stirring and even some peppermint schnapps to "kick-up" the mint taste if I choose.
