Do you want that cozy fall fragrance in your home?

Here are some Simmering Pot Recipes to share with you.  



 My favorite recipe for this time of year is:


2 TBS whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
5 star anise

Whole cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp apple pie or pumpkin pie spice


Directions
  • Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the ingredients from your favorite recipe, boil for a few minutes, then turn the heat down to simmer all day. Top up water as needed.
Caution: Set your timer for 30 minutes so you remember to top up with water. You don’t want the pot burning dry. Do not leave the house with this left heating on the stove.


 My mother always did this in our home growing up, it always was a nice and cozy aroma.  


The scent is so strong it goes through the entire house and I can even smell it outside! ..... It's great to add to that cozy atmosphere ! ...




*** Makes some sweet little gifts for family and friends too!  
you just need:
small baby food glass jars 
big batch of ingredients
layer the ingredients
add some ribbon to the jar
= thoughtful little gift for the season.
