2 tablespoons whole cloves
2 cups sugar
2 cups pineapple juice
8 cups weakly brewed tea
1. Squeeze juice from the lemons and oranges. Pour some boiling water over the cloves and let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Strain the juice and cloves. Add vegan sugar and pineapple juice, and mix well.
3. Add the tea and heat to boiling. Serve hot.
This is a favorite recipe from my childhood that has now become part of a holiday tradition. Every Christmas, when I go home to visit my parents, my mother and I sip this tea and eat vegan Christmas cookies as we decorate the tree together. Enjoy!
