It’s a great time of year to create spice mixes to bless family and friends just in time for use during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  Here’s a great multi-purpose blend that’s easy to make & give:

1Tbs dried gingerroot
3 – 3” cinnamon sticks
1tsp whole cloves
1tsp whole allspice
1tsp coriander seeds

Place all ingredients in a muslin bag or in a cheesecloth square tied with string. 
Use as:

Air freshener – combine with 4c water, bring to boil for 10 mins then simmer

Spiced punch – add 46oz can pineapple juice and 1qt apple cider to mix and simmer ½ hr. Remove bag, chill, add ginger ale and clove- studded orange slices







Holiday tea – 4qts water, 6 tea bags, add mix and bring to a boil. Remove bags, add 6oz lemonade and 6oz orange juice, reheat and serve with cinnamon stick stirrer


NOTE: Bag may be used at least twice. Allow to dry out completely between uses.


Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.”

Psalm 95:2-3
