Simmering Spice and everything's nice

The comforting scents of simmering spices just make life better somehow. I love the way they make my house smell. Mmmmm... Here's what currently simmering on my stove. 

Fall Simmering Spices
3 (4-inch) cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup whole cloves
1/2 lemon, halved
1/2 orange, halved
1 qt water

Combine all ingredients in a tea kettle or 1 or 2 quart saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer as long as desired. Check often and add water as needed. Mixture may be stored in refrigerator for several days. 

Do you have a favorite simmering spice recipe? Please share!

Happy Sunday afternoon, friends.
