Miracle Chamomile

An unexpected addition to your next fruit salad
0 Ratings

You've had tea warm in a cup, chilled in a glass and perhaps even swirled into ice cream. Now, how about tea in fruit salad? Our Test Kitchen marinated sliced peaches and apricots quickly in a blend of honey, lemon juice and brewed chamomile tea. The tea gives the salad pleasantly earthy notes, and a handful of fresh raspberries adds texture and sweetness. It's a downright intoxicating brew.
