What is a stovetop simmer pot?
A simmer pot is a basically a pot of water, fruits, herbs and spices that you simmer throughout the day to fill your home with a nice aroma. Simmer pots are really nice around the holidays with those warm spices but they can be enjoyed all year long. (This cozy coffee simmer pot is my other favorite combo).
In the past I’ve done simmer pots in any old ordinary pot but recently I got this glass pot on Amazon. It’s soooo pretty and I thought it would make a great hostess gift.
What you need to make this DIY Simmer Pot:
- Simmer Pot (linking it here)
- 2 oranges
- 1/2 bag of fresh cranberries
- Dried cloves
- 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- Ribbon or twine
How to make a DIY Simmer Pot Gift
Fill your pot with the oranges, cranberries and sprinkle in some cloves. With a ribbon or some twine, tie together the cinnamon sticks and rosemary and place in the pot. You don’t have to use this pot you can absolutely put together the ingredients and gather in a mason jar as well. Wrap and tie with a ribbon. If you want, you can also add a little tag with the instructions for simmering (listing the instructions below).
Fill a pot with about 3-4 cups of water. Add all ingredients to the pot and allow to simmer. Keep an eye on the water and add more as needed. You can reuse for a few days, just add more water. Enjoy!
