Foggy, rainy mornings are made for simmer pots, aren't they? So when this morning I woke up to gloomy autumn skies, I knew it's time to inject some cozyness into the flat and our senses. For some reason this is the first morning so far I feel like autumn is truly here. The air is so different, so fresh, and so crisp. So while I am writing this post, there is a smell of rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint and bay leaves dancing around the room. This just might me my favourite combination so far and I am determined to start my little simmer pot tradition this autumn. The simple things in life:)
Here is the recipe I used:
Fill a pot half full with water, bring to a boil, add 2 cups dried rosemary, 2 cups of dried lavender, 1 cup of dried eucalyptus leaves, 1/2 cup of dried peppermint, 1/2 cup of dried bay leaves. Turn heat down and simmer all day, adding water when needed. Ta dah!
P.S: And a few other combinations that you might also fancy.
P.P.S: Plus, autumn berry branches.
