Holiday Simmer Recipe

This is one of my most requested recipes! It is something I have been making for years, and it is not even a food recipe. This mixture, warming on the stove, will keep your home smelling festive all season long. I love when my home smells like Christmas!

There is nothing better than Holiday Simmer on the stove, Christmas music playing on the iPod, wrapping paper on the floor, chocolate in crystal bowls, broken ornaments, snow on the windows, peacefulness, giving, good red wine flowing, crackers and dips in festive plates and the company of family and friends!

Holiday Simmer

3 cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 lemon slices
2 tablespoons orange peel
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cups water

Mix all ingredients in medium saucepan. Simmer on low heat. Add water as needed throughout the day. I leave the same batch on the stove for a few days!
