Holiday Simmer time! December 4, 2011

Filed under: Autumn,Christmas,Holidays,Seasons,Thanksgiving,Winter — Tasya Marra Demers @ 3:22 pm

My favorite thing about a Sunday afternoon at Christmas time is to put a pot of holiday scents to simmer on the stove, yum!

If you have cinnamon sticks on hand I usually add 3.

3 Bay leaves

1/4 cup of whole  cloves

1teaspoon of ground cloves

A couple lemon slices

A couple orange peels

Add a quart of water

And simmer away! I keep the same pot going for 2 or 3 days.

Hope you give it a try, it is so inviting especially when you have company!

  1. Love the simmering pot idea. I do the same. What I need more info on is the yellow scarf you are wearing…do tell.
