Fall Simmer Pot Ideas

Fall Simmer PotThere is no better way to welcome fall this season than to bring the smell of fall into your home. The brutal Chicago weather won’t allow you to open your window and let some fresh air in, nor would that help bring the scent of an apple orchard or a pumpkin farm into your home. Instead, a simmer pot may be the best solution to bring the fragrances of fall into your home. It’s simple and will make for a pleasant & relaxing atmosphere in your home. Not only is this a cost effective way of greeting fall, it is also a natural and green solution (instead of burning artificial scents at home).

To get started…

Fill a pot with water and boil. Add your ingredients and boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to simmer. Refill water as needed.


Do not leave unattended. Do not forget to refill or your pot might burn out.
