Simmer Pot | Blogmas Day 6

Today’s blogmas post was “pot simmer recipes”.  This was honestly a foreign concept for me.  I had never heard of it before.  I had no idea until I was researching it for this post!

From what I read, you begin by bringing water to a boil.  You add your favorite ingredients and simmer it all day.  As the water simmers away, you add more water.  This actually not only adds fragrence to your home but it also adds some moisture to the air.  You have to supervise a simmer pot because you don’t want it to dry out all together.

So, I have searched a few recipes to try.  I think I’m going to just try to post 3 that peaked my interest.

First Option
  • 3 sprigs evergreen/handful pine needles
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 TBS whole cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 pieces orange rind
  • 2 pieces lemon rind
Second Option
  • 1 cup dried lavender
  • 1 tsp anise
  • 1 TBS nutmeg
  • 1 TBS whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
Third Option
  • Apple juice
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Whole cloves
