{Coastal Christmas} A Fragrant Home ~ Simmering Pot Recipes

Making your own simmering pot recipes is cost-effective and will have your home smelling warm and cozy in no time. I’ve been doing this for years and its a great way to use up orange and apple peels as well as outdated juices. Just fill a pot with water, add your favorite ingredients and simmer all day. This also helps humidify the home a bit.

The recipes are just guidelines, you can use different amounts and mix up ingredients as you like. You can certainly use ground cinnamon if you don’t have any cinnamon sticks available. Have fun experimenting!

Save: Orange, lemon and lime peels, apple skins (dry them out first before storing in a container).

Directions
Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the ingredients from your favorite recipe, boil for a few minutes, then turn the heat down to simmer all day. Top up water as needed.

Caution: Set your timer for 30 minutes so you remember to top up with water. You don’t want the pot burning dry. Do not leave the house with this left heating on the stove.
