I have a spice broth on the stove that simmers and permeates the kitchen and many senses. It reminds me of enjoying and being in this moment. The pot holds bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, coriander seeds, star anise, peppercorns and cloves! These will simmer in water for an hour or more. Strain. Spice stock ready to be used to cook beans, grains and vegetables.
Wishing everyone a Spicy New Year !!!!
