“I came across this recipe when searching for a recipe to prepare mulling spices to give as a gift (not to make a mulled drink). This is great to save some money (those store-bought mulling spices are EXPENSIVE) or *perfect* to slip into a gift basket or even put in a nice mug as a simple, thoughtful gift!”
4 spice bags
