Easy Christmas Simmer Pot Recipe


1 fresh orange, sliced

2 aromatic cinnamon sticks

A sprig from a Christmas tree (or fresh rosemary as a substitute)

A handful of vibrant cranberries

Sufficient water to cover the mix

Special Tip: Most Christmas tree lots give away tree clippings for free. Grab some to add authenticity to your simmer pot!


In a spacious pot or slow cooker, assemble all the ingredients.

Drench the mix with water until everything is submerged.

For stovetop, maintain a gentle simmer on low heat. If using a slow cooker, set it to low.

The ingredients will meld together as they simmer, diffusing a wonderful holiday scent. Stir now and then for even aroma release.

As the day progresses, add more water when needed to ensure it continues to simmer without running dry.

Relish in the warm, comforting aura that the Easy Christmas Simmer Pot brings to your home.

Important: Always keep an eye on the simmer pot. It should never be left on its own. Top it up with water when required, and feel free to play around with ingredients – perhaps add star anise, vanilla beans, or other spices to make it uniquely yours.

Invite your family and friends, savor the festive warmth, and let the Christmas Simmer Pot wrap everyone in its enchanting spell. Here’s to a season filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable aromas! 🎄✨
