Autumn Simmer Pot

Throughout September, I’m still clinging onto the light and airiness of an ending summer.  But come October, I’m craving cozy and all things Autumn.  We love welcoming Fall into our home with a collection of gourds, hand-picked pumpkins, fun kiddie projects and home brewed scents.  And after a major tossing and donating spree – it feels good to see a visible change in our space.  Today was a perfect day to infuse the delicious seasonal scents into our home with a natural Fall stove-top simmer pot.

I recommend experimenting with various ingredients for different seasonal pots.  Here is one of my favorite recipes for Fall:

Whole Cloves: 1.5 to 2 tablespoons
Cinnamon Sticks: 3
Apple Peels: 1 apple
Orange Rinds: 1 orange
Bay Leaves: 4 (optional)

Bring a small amount of water to boil in a small pot.  Add ingredients and continue boiling for a few minutes.  Lower heat to a simmer and add water as needed.

Cheers to Fall!
