I enjoy coming up with new ways to use my slow cooker in the kitchen. If it’s going to take up space, it needs to earn its keep! Serve this refreshing blueberry iced tea over plenty of ice and garnish it with blueberries if desired. For fun, freeze blueberries in your ice cubes. —Colleen Delawder, Herndon, Virginia
