Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Peach Jasmine Ice Tea

Today was hot...sweltering hot! And what better way to cool off than with a nice iced tea. This past week my brother and I went peach picking, we came home with 11 lbs of peaches! Plenty of peaches for a variety of things from peach muffins to peach iced tea.

Despite today's heat, Kishore and I spent the better part of the day in our backyard. And after working tending our garden in the oppressive heat, it was time for us to take a break and rehydrate. So inside I went, to quickly whip up some nice, cool, refreshing, much needed iced tea.

This simple fruity ice tea is perfectly cool for hot summer afternoons. Light, refreshing floral jasmine melding with sun-kissed sweet, freshly picked peaches. 

Here is the recipe for Peach Jasmine Ice Tea:
Makes 4 servings


3 Large Ripe Peaches
1 TBLSP Jasmine Tea (Dragon Pearl)*
1 TBLSP Honey
3 cups of water

* Green Tea goes well too!


1. Heat the water to just before boil then allow to cool slightly.
2. Pour 3 cups warm water over the Jasmine Pearls, add the honey, and allow to seep for 3-5minutes.

3. Peel the peaches and puree in a blender or food processor.

4. Add the cooled tea, peach puree, and ice to mix in a blender or food processor.

Serve with Ice cubes, and garnish with a Peach slice.
