Mulling Spices in Jars

This Mulling Spices Recipe is filled with warming and aromatic spices and makes such an easy and welcome gift.

This is the time of the year when it's best to have a stash of gifts on hand when you need something for your mailman, your hairdresser, your favorite cashier, the hostess at your Christmas gathering, and…well, you get my drift. There are just so many gifting opportunities.

A jar of Mulling Spices is such an easy to gift to make and appreciated by just about everyone…I mean, who doesn't love spiced cider? And if they don't like spiced cider, well…I just don't know what to say!Cups of spiced cider with molasses cookies

You could pair the jar of mulling spices with a Mulling Spice Ball.  I got mine at Williams-Sonoma years ago, but they have this one that looks similar and Amazon has a very similar one as well.Jars of Mulling Spices

So, let's look at this mulling spices recipe:

This mulling spices recipe makes almost 16 ounces, so I divided it between 2 almost 8 ounces jars.

I used my Weck Jars (you know I love those Weck Jars!) and attached a label (I used Avery Labels 22808) to the lid which gives guidance on how to use the mulling spices. Here is a PDF of the labels I made in case you would like to use them as well…  Mulling Spices

    We were just talking about mulled wine last weekend. It seems to show up this time of year. I love this gift idea and am a huge fan of Weck Jars. You’ve probably seen them all over my website. I also like to make edible gifts, especially this time of year but I haven’t this year outside of cookies. This may be the one. ♥

      I hope you enjoy it! And I do love all the spices of mulling cider and wine, if only because my home smells so wonderful!

    I’ve discovered oui yogurt and the jars are piling up and because jars can be so useful I seem to be collecting them without even thinking about it. This spice would be a great idea to reuse those jars and then just figure out a cover for a fun presentation. After I finish my workbench project I may have to ponder this a little more. Great idea!

      ABSOLUTELY!!! I haven’t had the oui yet…but guess I ought to. And how is that workbench coming?

      Merry Christmas my friend!
