Mint Tamarind Iced Sun Tea

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
You know, the beverage of the week doesn’t always have to be alcoholic! This week I want to share a recipe for a great, unusual ice tea form the book entitled Mangoes and Curry Leaves, which is a great big, beautiful cookbook and travel adventure through the great subcontinent.

2 cups fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup Tamarind pulp
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon honey or sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 cups water

Place all the ingredients in a large clean glass jar and place in the sun for a few hours. Then strain out the stuff and refrigerate. I serve it over ice and I add more honey, but that’s just me!
