Mulling Spice Recipe

I was intrigued by this recipe for 

I did not however have the Packaged Mulling Spice
that Susan used in her recipe.

I did the next best thing,
I Googled how to make my own....

*ground allspice

I added 1/4 cup of homemade 
Mulling Spice
to a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple
and a 14 oz. can of whole cranberry
and 1/2 cup of crushed pecans
(as per Susan's recipe)

I mixed it all together and believe me...


I can't wait to serve it on Thanksgiving!

While I was at it I decided to make Cranberry Bread...

I used a Krusteaz Fat Free Cranberry Orange box mix. 

Instead of adding the can of cranberry-orange that came with the box, I mixed the can of cranberry-orange
with a cup of the homemade cranberry relish and added it to the bread mix.  

I used the little can it came with as my measurement for the relish.

Now the cranberry-orange bread had pecans, pineapple, cranberry, and orange!

And now being a crafter and not really a cook,

I couldn't stop there...

I filled several jars with the homemade 
Mulling Spice
added a label and I'm giving it 
to my guests for Thanksgiving.

Mix 1/2 a cup of Mulling Spice and 1 cup of water
into 2 cups of red wine, cider or tea. Simmer and
you have a delicious treat 
for the holidays!

It makes your house smell great too!
