Homemade Christmas Spice Bundles

4 cinnamon sticks
2 tsp. ground allspice
2 tsp. ground ginger
20 whole cloves
2 Tbsp pickling spice
dried orange and or lemon peel is also a nice addition if you have them on hand

Place all in a decorative jar. Attach a card that reads: “Pour the spices into a kettle or pan, add a quart of water and cook until hot. Turn down the heat to low and simmer for a while. Makes the house smell wonderful.”

Or tie the spices into bundles to be used for mulling cider.
