Holiday Fragrances

December 6th, 2011 by Pamela Murski

How to make a house smell like home over the holidays!!!  This is a tried and true recipe we rely on at the B&B during the holidays…..the smell makes everyone happy!  There is nothing better than holiday simmer on the stove, Christmas music playing on the ipod, good red wine flowing, crackers and dips in festive plates and the company of family and friends!

Holiday Simmer

3 cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 lemon slices
2 tablespoons orange peel
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 quart water

Mix all ingredients in medium saucepan. Simmer on low heat. Add water as needed throughout the day. I leave the same batch on the stove for a few days!
