BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, JULY 22,1954 Now You Can Fix Iced Tea in Four Flavors By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor IT'S HARD TO GET a good glass of iced tea —if you like real tea flavor and not just amber colored water. Usually the brew is not strong enough and it is diluted with much ice: or if the brew is strong •nough, it i* still over-diluted. . Here is our favorite method ol" making ice tea. We like it because it is quick and gives uniform flavor. We use three level teaspoons of a fine grade of black tea and two cup* of water for every two 16- ounce-glass servings. Yes, we like «, really tall drink! First we put the required amount of water on to boil; as soon as the water boils, we pour it over the tea leaves in » tea-pot and let it brew exactly five minutes by the clock. Then we stir the tea leaves once and strain Fish fillets get a lift when you season them this way. DELICIOUS BROILED FISH FILLETS Ingredients: 2 pounds fish fillets, % cup butter or margarine, « cup lemon juice, 1 bay leaf, 1/16 teaspoon ground thyme, 2 teaspoons finely grated onion (pulp and juice), salt, pepper, paprika. Method: Arrange fillets on boiling pan, skinside down- Heat butter. lemon juice bay leaf (broken into several pieces), thyme and onion in smafi saucepan until, butter is melted: stir well and pour over fillers. Broil about 2 inches from source of heat about 8 to 10 minutes or Tin til fish flakes easily with a fork and if opaque. Baste once during broiling, but do not turn. Sprinkle •with salt, pepper and paprika. Serve at, once with pan juices. Make* 4 servings. the tea into the glasses. If your glasses aren't heavy, put a teaspoon in the glass before you pour. Next we put ice cubes in each glass — leaving room for dilution — give the tea and ice a whirl with a long- handled spoon, and serve at once. If the tea stands a oit and clouds, add a tablespoon of boiling water for each serving and it will clear. But honestly, we think there it too much fuss about tea clouding — \ especially since we learned that fine teas axe more likely to cloud' than poorer grades! Because the members of our family and many of our friends like their iced tea sweetened and flavored with lemon or lime, in summer we often make up a batch of lemon or lime tea syrup and keep it in the refrigerator. At serving time, we add syrup to taste to each glass of tea, or let people help themselves. You can make other flavors of tea syrup, too — orange or mint, for instance. LEMON OR LIME TEA SYRUP Ingredients: 1 cup sugar, % cup water, lemon or lime rind, & cup lemon or li^ae juice. Method: Put sugar and water in a small saucepan. Cut rind thinly away from one-half a lemon or lime so it is membrane-free; slice into very thin even strips. Add rind to saucepan with lemon or lime juice. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring quickly to a boil; boil 5 minutes without stirring. Cool and refrigerate in tightly covered jar. Makes about 1% cups. In serving, garnish syrup with thin slice of lemon or lime. Orange Syrup: Use 1 cup sugar, \z cup water, thin strips of membrane-free orange rind from one- half of an orang rind half of an orange. Ht cup orange juice. Skim off any bits of foam. Makes about 1*4 cups. In serving, garnish syrup with thin slice of orange. Mint Syrup: Use 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint. Chill and strain. Makes about" l cup. In serving, garnish syrup with mint sprig. New Main Dish Is Family Fare Tuna Onion Bake Will Please Them Here's • a delightful new main dish, made with tuna, to try on your family.
