Welcome to Kitchen Tip Tuesdays!
These are some of my tea-making gadgets. But- tea balls don't have to be just for tea!
You can use them to house herbs and spices in soups and drinks (like heated cider) for quick removal. ...Some members of my family think "you're the winner" if you get the bay leaf....others find it a bother. A tea ball solves the bother. It can also help you obtain a clearer broth as you can put your herbs, garlic, and peppercorns in it and remove them when done.
