This is a simple recipe to throw together and can then be used in a variety of recipes. I made one set of spices as a gift and used another for Hot Mulled Wine.
2 tsp. whole allspice
1/4 tsp. whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick-broken in half
1 (3 x1-inch) strip orange rind
Combine ingredients together in cheesecloth satchel (or the highly sophisticated coffee filter method).
