Cold - brewed Iced Coffee

Lately I have been really into Pioneer Woman show on Food Network. Of course it's a cooking show (shocker!) and I love her and her recipes. She is so down to earth, always smiles and lives on a ranch. Seriously, how can you not be smiling when you live on a ranch?!?!

When I was going thru her mouth watering recipes I came across a recipe for iced coffee. My first reaction was "Really??? Do you REALLY need a recipe for iced coffee?!?!". In my book iced coffee was simply left over, gross coffee you collect from the coffee pot after you are done with your daily coffee dose. You pour it into a glass and put it into the fridge just because you are too darn cheap to throw it out. Well, apparently that's not the right way to make this delicious beverage.  According to Ree cold-brew is the way to go while preparing ice-coffee.  Yes, you hear it right. COLD-BREW is the answer to your prayer if you are looking for smooth and less acidic drink.

If you think making coffee always involves heating the water, it's not true at all!  Cold-brewed coffee is simple to make and makes a smooth, delicious brew which is up to 67% less acidic. During the process time replaces heat. The results are a coffee concentrate that can be diluted with water, milk, ice or used straight to make an espresso. You can keep the cold brewed coffee in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. HERE is the recipe so enjoy it!
