No matter what kind of house you live in, I bet you want it to smell yummy. Here is a guide on fall simmer pots from DealDash.
I don’t know about you, but I end up cleaning my house myself most of the time, and one of the things that I like to do is make the air smell yummy and clean. I have found quite a few handy tips and tricks through the years to make the house smell good – from chemicals to candles to natural methods. Here are a few helpful hints from DealDash.
Around this time of year the air in the house tends to get a little stale due to no windows being opened, and people opening and shutting the doors as fast as possible to keep out the chilly weather. There’s a way to freshen up the air in your house without too much effort – simmer pots!
Making a simmer pot is extremely easy. There are two basic methods – on the stove or in a crock pot. Both have their positives and negatives, let’s talk about both methods.
To make a simmer pot on the stove you just need to combine the ingredients together, fill the pot with water, and simmer away. The idea is to simmer the pot all day, adding more water as needed. This way gets the maximum scent, and also has the added benefit of extremely easy clean up. However, if you have small kids, pets that jump onto the counter, or a gas stove – this method is not for you.
Making a simmer pot using a crock pot is easy and you can let it simmer all day without even having to watch it, other than to just check in occasionally to make sure that it doesn’t need any more water. I don’t feel that this method spreads around as much scent, but it’s the only way to go if you have any safety concerns about the stove method.
As for what to put in the simmer pot – it’s up to you! I will include a list of some possibilities, mix and match the ingredients as you see fit.
- dried orange peel
- cinnamon sticks
- cardamom pods
- fresh ginger
- star anise
- vanilla bean
- bay leaf
