I want to bake something special, make it taste like love and Yule. So, I’m beginning with building my own “extract” with raw honey, molasses, and mulling spices.
Specifically, I love this blend of spices: Kerridwen’s Cauldron Mulling Spices
It’s been steeping in a tea pot with a little hot water for about an hour now, and the kitchen smells like warm winter comfort. I’d share the measurements, but I didn’t take any, and everyone has their preferences. Maybe it’s the theater girl in me, but I’m an improv baker.
But, what about you? What brings your kitchen to life?
