Fragrant Mulling Spices

Make your house smell wonderful and inviting during the holidays and through the winter months with this mulling spice blend. There is nothing more inviting then a house that smells of cozy spices, don't you think? Enjoy!

Fill a small pot with 3-4 inches of water.
2-3 cinnamon sticks
1 heaping tablespoon whole cloves
Peel of a whole orange (you could also use clementine peels!)
Pinch of all-spice
If you have it on hand, you could also add one vanilla bean

Add all ingredients and simmer over very low heat. Simmer all day and enjoy the fragrance. Adding more water to the pot as needed. If you need to leave your house make sure you turn the heat off. Never leave the simmering mulling spices unattended.

Ah, I can just imagine how delicious that smells. As soon as I get home (I'm in Australia) I plan to just permanently keep a pot of that brewing on my stove. Mmmmm!
