Karen! Karen! I took your advice and got the Café Du Monde coffee and tried cold brewing.
I watched this video and followed the instructions. I wasn't sure about the ratio of coffee to water, so I just used 3/4 cup of the Café Du Monde and filled the water to the max level (4 cups for my press). I let it steep overnight (about 11 hours).
I was shocked to see how dark the coffee turned out. I thought for sure it would be bitter.
But it wasn't bitter at all. It was goooooood. I think I'll try 1/2 cup of the grounds the next time and see how it goes.
Don't know if you guys noticed, but I have a new section on the right sidebar called "Recipes". I never expected this blog to last this long and the collection of recipes to become so extensive. I've been going through the recipes and am applying tags to them, so have been able to finally get them organized . . . sorta. "Favorites" are recipes that've received more than 600 views. I'm not pau yet . . . but almost. Addendum: I just did a second batch of cold brew using 1/2 cup of coffee instead of 3/4 cup, and it was even better than my first batch . . . so smoooooth . . . so Danger-Will Robinson-Danger ono.
