How to Create a Fall Simmer Pot

Posted by Hardip Kalsi on

As the weather cools, nothing makes your home more inviting than yummy scents emerging from the kitchen! Make your home an inviting cozy pad with this easy delectable simmer pot! And you can use what you normally buy for groceries! 

Ingredients and Materials:

  • A medium simmer pot
  • Water
  • Oranges (peels only are OK)
  • Apples
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Cloves (optional)
  • Essential oils (optional)


  1. Add water about halfway up to your simmer pot and heat. 
  2. While the water heats up, slice apples and oranges into circular slices.
  3. Add the apples, oranges, cinnamon sticks and optional ingredients into your simmer pot and get to a slow boil.
  4. Lower heat and enjoy the fragrance! 

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can add more water as the pot boils down and continue to simmer on low heat.
  • A bonus of this recipe is that it will add some moisture back into the air to compensate for the dryness that comes with central heating or burning a fireplace to warn your home. 
  • You can also add a few drops of  soothing essential oils to the simmer pot for a stronger fragrance. I would recommend oils in the same citrus, apple and cinnamon family so they don’t clash.
