Inspiration Potion

I got a special little container. It is green glass with the word “Inspire” etched into it.

Iron Venice Potion Bottles

So I made a magic potion:

1 Meyer lemon – shave off the zest, then quarter.  Add the whole fruit

1 or 2 satsuma oranges, quartered, again, add whole fruit.

3 green cardamom pods

one piece of star anise

1/4 tsp mahleb powder

1 cinnamon stick

pinch nutmeg

1 cup sugar

31/2 cups  water

5 saffron threads

Put everything into a crock pot or on the stove at the very lowest heat. Simmer until the sugar is fully incorporated and the steam is aromatic. Cool, strain through a seive and put it into your favorite decanter.  Serve either warm or chilled when you need a little inspiration.
