Coffee Okra Shake THM FP

Okra, a super-food and coffee — what do they have in common? Combined together they make a very tasty, filling shake. Added coffee extract helps to mask the okra taste and don’t forget the maple flavoring. It blends together for a wonderful taste.

Cold-Brewed Coffee — THM S or FP

Hot humid summer days are here and there’s nothing more refreshing than a cup or two of Iced Cold-Brewed Coffee. I keep cold-brewed coffee concentrate in my fridge all summer long for a quick drink. It tastes so much better when made with freshly ground coffee beans given to you from Nicaragua and Nepal.

  • 4 cups freshly ground coffee
  • 1/3 cup vanilla
  • Cold water to fill gallon jar

Combine coffee grounds and vanilla in a gallon glass jar. Fill with cold water. Allow the coffee to brew/steep at room temperature for 12-24 hours. Strain through a muslin cloth. Discard grounds. Refrigerate concentrate.  To make iced coffee use 1 part concentrate, 1 part nut milk, 1 part ice, and sweetener of your choice.

This can also be brewed in a French Press using 1/2 of the recipe.

A Wedding

family 1 25

Our family was blessed to have a new son join our family on September 23rd when our oldest daughter, Andrea, got married. The weeks before the wedding were extremely busy times of sewing dresses, doing alterations on suit coats, and then the food prep began. I thoroughly enjoy cooking/baking and that was a plus as we made most of the food for 270+ people. Miranda helped to measure freshly ground coffee into gallon jars to make cold-brewed iced coffee concentrate. It was a warm day so it was very refreshing to have a cup or two of iced coffee.

  • Cold-brewed Iced Coffee
  • 4 cups freshly ground coffee
  • 1/3 cup vanilla
  • Cold water to fill gallon jar
  • Allow the coffee to brew at room temperature for 12-24 hours. Strain and discard the grounds. Refrigerate.  To make iced coffee use 1 part concentrate, 1 part milk, 1 part ice, and sweetener of your choice. For myself, I prefer almond/coconut milk but for serving at the wedding we used whole milk from Lapp Valley Farms. We, also, had flavored syrups and Reddi-whip individuals could add to their coffee. If you have never tried cold-brewed coffee, try it. You may be surprised at the wonderful flavor in this refreshing drink.
