There's nothing like a Mulling Spice to set the holiday mood. Around Pumpkin Spice season each year, I create a bunch of mulling spice sachets that I can just pop into a copper pot with some water, whatever citrus I have handy and a few drops of vanilla.
This recipe makes 12 sachets
- 24 star anise
- 12 teaspoons of cloves
- 12 cinnamon sticks
- 12 teaspoons of pink peppercorns
- 24 cardamom pods
When the mood strikes, or you're expecting company, put a pot of water on to boil, toss in a sachet, two halved lemons or oranges and a bit of vanilla. Your house will be smelling divine in no time.
