Drinks you may not know about: bean pod tea
Bean pod tea tastes like... green beans. A little, anyway. If you like green beans, you'll enjoy it. Sugar seems odd in it. Don't throw out those bean pods from your summer garden. You can compost them or feed them to your chickens (they'll more likely eat them after they're "cooked") after you make tea from them. You make bean pod tea with dry bean pods. Save the pods after the bean harvest and bring them to a boil and boil for a few minutes. How long depends on how strong you want the tea to taste. If you have trouble with high blood sugar, bean pod tea will help regulate that. It's a mild detoxing agent and will help cleanse the kidneys and bladder.
