Sweet Tea with Peach

Hello sweet tea lovers!  I remember years ago going to a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina and at the reception having peach flavored iced tea.  It was delicious!  Funny, I haven't thought about that in years. 

I found a great easy way to have it at home and I thought I'd share it with you.

Let's Make Tomato Sauce Plus Ball FreshTech HarvestPro Sauce Maker

Family trivia, with a tidbit of history thrown in:  My daddy told me something when I first started dating Chuck years ago.  He said, "You dating a mater masher"?  Yes he did! He had only a few years before been fighting in WWII against the Italians. That, of course changed when they became our allies,  Before then, the American soldiers called them 'Mater Mashers'.

I married that 'Mater Masher'. We do have lots of 'maters', He came from a long line of "Mater Mashers'.
