October Friendship Gift: Mulling Spice

Mulling spice is the ideal old-fashioned aromatic addition to bring the scent and/or taste of fall inside.  Simply simmer with cider or wine to capture the taste and smell of the season in your cup.  I also like to add it to a pot of water (sometimes with the addition of cranberries and oranges) simmering on low to fill the house with a classic scent of autumn. When simmering the water be sure to keep a close eye on the pot and always keep it filled to prevent burning.

Individual Bags of Mulling Spice:
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon(or a pinch) ground clove
¼ teaspoon (or a pinch) ground allspice
pinch of nutmeg
star of anise
cinnamon stick

 {I put the mulling spice in loose tea bags}
 {wrap in a 6×6 inch piece of fabric adorned with twine and a cinnamon stick}
{water, mulling spice bag and cinnamon stick}
