I thought I would share with you today my “recipe” for bringing the smell of Fall inside the house. My mom used to make this, and leave it simmering on the stove for hours….letting the cinnamony smell penetrate the house over Thanksgiving/Christmas/Fall gathering of choice. Such happy memories it brings back!
A couple of cinnamon sticks, 4 or 5 whole cloves, a splash of vanilla extract and the peel of an apple. Throw it in a small pot with a cup of water and simmer.
As long as you keep water in it, it will spice up your kitchen for hours!
