Summer Coffee

So this isn't the first time I've mentioned homemade iced coffee here. But I felt I must write and tell you again how good it is so that you will make some soon. I missed out on it last summer while I was pregnant and I have had some catching up to do. I urge you to make a batch right now so it will be ready when you head out to the Farmer's Market or sit down with the newspaper tomorrow morning.

1/3 cup ground coffee (medium-coarse grind is best)
Milk (optional)

1. In a jar, stir together coffee and 1 1/2 cups water. Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight or 12 hours.
2. Strain twice through a coffee filter, a fine-mesh sieve, or a sieve lined with cheesecloth. In a tall glass filled with ice, mix equal parts coffee concentrate and water, or to taste. If desired, add milk.
Yield: Two drinks.
