This is all about mixing your favourite smells of Christmas together and allowing it to simmer in a pot and fill your home with the festive smell in the air. It's also perfect to trick people into thinking you've been spending all day long baking when in fact you took a few minutes to throw some things into a pot and call it a day. Feel free to mix what you love together and leave out what you don't like. Most importantly just have fun with this recipe Also feel free to substitute things. If you don't want to waste Apples/lemons/oranges feel free to just use the Juice.
