Fall Blend Recipe #1
Watch the 30 second video below to see how to make this super simple Autumnal crock pot blend and then continue below for full step-by-step instructions with photos.
- Cinnamon sticks
- Apple peels
- Orange rinds
- Whole cloves
This first recipe is my favorite and my go to blend for fall. I save the apple rinds and cores and the peels off of oranges in the fridge or freezer.
Peel the skin off of a couple of apples. If possible, save the core too.
Since the scent of citrus is much stronger, you can add as much as you want to the blend. I love the smell of citrus. It’s uplifting and refreshing, so I add extra.
Add the peels to a small crock pot with water along with two sticks of cinnamon and a dash of whole cloves.
Turn the pot on low and let it slowly warm. Leave the lid off for a stronger scent. This pot can continue to simmer for a couple of days. Add more peels and water if needed after the first day.
