Mulling Spice

Great beverage for the holidays, and mulling spice mixes make a nice gift at the holidays, too.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: several spice bags

Prep Time: 5 minutes  


6 whole cinnamon sticks

1 tablespoon whole cloves

1 tablespoon whole allspice

1 tablespoon dried orange peel

6 star anise pods


Break up cinnamon sticks then place in a baggie–smash with a hammer to break up the sticks some more. Combine cinnamon sticks with the rest of the ingredients. Store in a tightly-closed container. Recipe can be multiplied as desired.

To use, put two teaspoons of mulling spices in the center of a 4-inch square of cheesecloth and tie to make a bag or place in a spice ball. Place one bag in one quart apple juice, cranberry juice, or red wine. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
