Make Your Own Holiday Mulling Spice

The holiday season is here and so is the partaking all of your usual traditions. There is no substitute for the heartwarming activities that we look forward to enjoying each year, but what if you could make those special times just a little bit nicer?  Simmer a batch of my holiday mulling spice on the stove and you can do just that!  The aroma of this delightful combination of spices will infuse your home leaving it warm and inviting.  What better way to get into the holiday spirit?  Your home will be fragrant with the scents of allspice, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and orange.  It’s time to “Deck the Halls” and place your “Boughs of Holly”.  Oh, and don’t forget your holiday Christmas music too!  Happy holidays!

Here is how I did it!

Grab a 1-1/2 to 2 quart saucepan and add 4 cups of water.  Over medium high heat bring the water to a boil.  Add your allspice, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, and orange peel and reduce the heat to medium-low.  It’s that easy.  Just let the spices simmer throughout the day as they infuse the house with aromas of the holidays.  Make sure to check on it regularly to fill it with more water as needed.  Like any lit candle, you don’t want to forget and leave it unattended.

Now let’s start decorating!
