When the holidays come around there's no better way to get in the spirit than to get a festive foraged simmer pot going on the stove! The smell is incredible and will get your home smelling like the holidays in a natural way. It's even better when you use foraged ingredients for this winter potpourri!
Add any of the simmer pot ingredients that you would like to use to the pot.
Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, then turn down the heat so that the water just barely simmers.
Keep the simmering pot on the stove for as long as you'd like, just be sure to watch the water level so that it doesn't get too low. Add more water if necessary as needed.
I generally start with a base of fresh cranberries, conifer springs, orange slices, and spices like cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and ginger. Then I add whatever else I have on hand or can easily forage!
