Simmer Pot Recipes For Fall

I’ve rounded up 5 simmer pot recipes for fall.

A potpourri simmer pot is a way to make your home smell fragrant for the season or holiday. Simmer pots are easy to make and inexpensive.

A simmer pot consists of boiling a combination of fruit, herbs, and other spices in water, then reducing it to a low simmer. The scented water then evaporates and brings the featured scent into your home.

Turn the temperature down slightly if the water is on the verge of boiling.

If the temperature is too low and you don’t see bubbles breaking the water’s surface, turn the temperature up slightly. Keep the stove on medium-low heat for a steady simmer.

Once you’ve finished simmering your recipe, drain any remaining water using a sieve. Then allow the ingredients to cool down and store them in an air-tight box in the refrigerator.

  1. I have never been so tired of Summer weather. Fall can’t get here soon enough. The idea of sipping hot tea or hot chocolate, wrapped in a fuzzy throw, sounds like heaven.

  2. All those recipes sound wonderful! I think I actually might have enough ingredients to make one of those without having to run to the store. My mind can already smell them! Fall is in the air! Thank you for all these great ideas! Also, it’s probably (hopefully) way better for cats. I hear the essential oils are bad for them.

  3. Oh I just love fall! That’s one of my fav seasons!
    I just bought a bag of apples yesterday from the store that came from an orchard. Yum!
    That means new and old recipes with apples to bake with.

  4. Love all the recipes, thanks for sharing. They are tons better because they are natural. Our daughter and I are going to check out Trader Joe’s fall offerings this week. I got hooked on their scones and I also love Kroger’s scones. Have a good day!
