The weather cools down, the windows frost over, and the leaves change from bright green to copper. It feels cozy, sitting near the heater in a thick sweater, but does it smell like autumn? With this easy recipe, you can make a simmer pot perfect for fall! You may already have everything that you need to make this pot of happiness, but just in case you need to run to the store, here’s what you’ll need:
- cinnamon sticks
- vanilla extract OR vanilla beans
Slice the fruits into large chunks and leave the peels intact. Depending on your pot, you may only be able to fit one or two of each fruit, but the smell will be able to reach every nook and cranny of your home!
Fill the pot until the water just about covers everything and add a half tablespoon of vanilla along with a stick or two of cinnamon. Cover the pot and bring everything to a boil.
Remove the lid and set the stove to the lowest heat. In just a few minutes, your home will smell better than any candles you could buy from a store! Every so often, check the pot and add water to avoid scorching the pot and burning the fruits. See more details here.
