Ree Drummond's Batch Iced Coffee Can Literally Last The Whole Month
By Garth Clingingsmith
Good iced coffee and cold brew recipes are easy to find and pull off, but these batches might only satisfy a coffee habit for a few days. To solve that, food blogger and cookbook author Ree Drummond makes enough cold brew to last a month.
The key to this big batch is a container of at least eight quarts with a lid and coarsely ground coffee. Add the coffee to the water, stir, and wait until it’s time to strain, but "make sure you have a fine-mesh strainer and some cheesecloth," per The Pioneer Woman.
Drummond’s instructions will give you almost two gallons of cold brew, and you have a lot of flexibility when it comes to using it. In addition to iced coffee, it can also be heated up for a warm cup of joe or made into treats like cold brew soda, coffee mocktail, and coffee ice cream.
