November Tea

In November, we hosted a fall tea for our customers at the shop. Here is a sampling of some of the goodies. Yum! The cucumber tea sandwiches were very popular. They are not shown because they were gone in an instant! But I do have the recipe for you.

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Peel and thinly slice 2 cucumbers. Soak overnight in a mixture of 1 cup water, 1/2 cup vinegar and 3 tbls. sugar. Mix together 1/2 cup softened butter and a couple sprigs of finely chopped fresh basil. Rinse and pat dry cucumber slices. Spread butter mixture on bread slices, layer cucumber slices and top with another buttered bread slice. Trim crusts and quarter sandwich into triangles. Enjoy!
