    I make iced tea in the coffe maker. I have an iced tea maker, but it takes up way too much counter space. What I do is put the tea bags in the carraffe after I have added all the water to the coffee maker. When it is done, I let it steep a few hours, then in a 2 quart pitcher, I add 2 cups sugar, and 1/4 cup lemon juice, and enough water to fill to the top. I'm making some right now. Mom makes it the old fashioned way in her big dutch oven pot. Brings water to a rolling boil, then adds 14 tea bags, and turns off the stove. (never boil tea, it brings out the tanic acid, and could cause stomach cramps)
