Christmas Simmering Pot

Our whole house smells incredible because of this pot.


Make your house smell like Christmas.  There’s a waft of cinnamon and cloves filling our house as I write this.  It’s amazing.  You need to give it a try.

Just grab a pot and fill it with water.

Now add these ingredients:
3 sprigs evergreen or handful pine needles – I borrowed from our Christmas tree 🙂
2 cinnamon sticks
2 TBS whole cloves
2 bay leaves
2 pieces orange rind
2 pieces lemon rind

I found this recipe online here.  I liked this site because I already had most of the ingredients in our kitchen.

Once you have your pot ready, boil it for a bit at first and then turn it down to simmer.  Just make sure you keep adding water to the pot throughout the day.


I came across the idea of simmering pots when putting together my #holidayhygge project.  It’s my attempt at slowing down for the month of December and doing some old school, cozy things at home.  Simmering pots are a win.
