If March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers, you might as well stay full and satisfied with these recipes by the officials of the Made In Oklahoma Coalition.

The following recipes use ingredients from Made in Oklahoma Coalition food manufacturers with products produced by deVine, Ozarka Water, Dairy Pure, Andrew’s Honey Bee’s, Cheatwood’s Honey, Fast Fixin, Hiland, Suan’s, Griffin’s and Shawnee Mills.


6 cups cold De Vine or Ozarka Water

2 teaspoons black peppercorns

10 whole cloves

1 small star anise

6 cardamom pods

2-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced thinly

2 cinnamon sticks

6 bags Darjeeling tea

2 cups Dairy Pure whole milk

⅓ cup Cheatwood’s Pure Raw Honey

1. Place the peppercorns and cloves in a medium saucepan, and crush slightly using a large serving spoon. Add the cardamom and anise, crushing again with spoon.

2. Add the water, ginger and cinnamon stick and bring to soft boil.

3. Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer gently for 10 – 15 minutes. Add the tea, and allow it to steep for an additional 5-10 minutes. At this point the mixture is ready for straining — a fine sieve works well.

4. Add the milk and honey, and return to the heat until it has returned to a gentle simmer. Whisk briskly when pouring, and serve hot.
