“This refreshing, simple dessert is a delicious twist on a summer standby, and it's great to have on hand for hot afternoons. For a frozen mint iced tea, add several fresh mint sprigs with the lemon juice and sugar mixture; discard mint before freezing. You can use any tea you like. Most of the prep time is just standing time and the cooking time is freeze time.”
