When I was a little girl growing up in the countryside, my Mom always had a pot filled with fruits, herbs and vanilla simmering on the stove. Picture hot apple cider or warm mulled wine simmering all day. It would fill our home with a delicious gourmand scent and it felt like a big hug.
Simmer pots are a natural and organic way to bring fragrance into your home and it can help use leftover produce that you may have lying around.
I love adding layers of fragrance to my home and one of the best ways to do this is by combining complimentary fragrances in different forms. For example, I might have a fall scented candle burning in the living room and a simmer pot on my stovetop in the kitchen. It creates a rich depth to the atmosphere and is an incredible scent experience for you, your family, and visiting friends.
Fall Simmer Pot Recipe
Simmer pots work best with juicy fragrant fruits, citrus and spices like cinnamon and cloves but you can experiment with what ingredients you have on hand. For example, if you don't have apples, you could use oranges. Mix and match and try new combinations to find what you like best. If you don't like the smell of a certain ingredient, just skip that one and use what you do like. I change up the ingredients I use based on the season.
