This will have your house smelling absolutely delicious! To a pan of water, simply add a few cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, a dozen or so whole cloves, and orange and/or lemon peels (I threw in this orange left over from the Hot Caramel Apple Cider recipe in the Autumn Luncheon post). Heat on low and allow to simmer. Periodically add more water as it evaporates (don't let it burn dry!!). At the end of the day, allow the mixture to cool, pour it into a glass jar and store in the frig to use again for the next several days. NOTE: You can, of course, vary this recipe based on what's in your pantry.
