There’s something about having a simmer pot going on the stove during the winter months—it just makes the house feel warm and cozy (and it smells so good). I love to use mulling spices, sliced oranges, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries in a simmer pot during the holidays, but my mom recently introduced me to this simmer pot recipe, and I love it for any time of year.
If you’ve ever walked into a Williams Sonoma and immediately noticed the fresh scent of rosemary and lemon, this simmer pot was probably brewing that day.
