Are you expecting a houseful this Thanksgiving? Well, I have a way for you to delight every last one of your guests from the moment they enter your front door. How about appealing to their sense of smell with a spice mix simmering on the stove?
I promise this is the easiest thing you will prepare for the big feast and you will love it so much that you’ll keep it up throughout the rest of the holiday season:
Stovetop Spice Mix Recipe:
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Whole Cloves
- Orange Peels
Bring ingredients to a simmer and enjoy!
And that’s it! I often start simmering my spice mix about 30 minutes before my guests arrive and when the pot starts to steam, I walk around with it to spread the scent more quickly throughout the house.
One thing to note is that the orange peels do not last so you will need to toss this spice mix every so often. For variety, try swapping out the orange peels for lemon or apple peels. What combinations have you tried?
