Christmas Simmer Pot
We’re having a guest tonight, so I’m setting this out on the wood stove at the guest house.
Throw 2 sliced oranges, 1 cup cranberries, 3 cinnamon sticks and 1 Tablespoon cloves in a pot filled 2/3 full of water. Place on your wood stove, adding water as needed.
There is a variation on this recipe, calling for:
3 sprigs evergreen or handful pine needles
2 cinnamon sticks
2 TBS whole cloves
2 bay leaves
2 pieces orange rind
2 pieces lemon rind
I’m saving the second recipe for Christmas Eve since it’s more Christmasy to me.
