This Mulling Spices Recipe is filled with warming and aromatic spices. Homemade Mulling Spices makes an easy and welcome gift, especially when paired with the included label and a mulling ball.

This is the time of the year when it’s best to have a stash of gifts on hand when you need something for your mailman, your hairdresser, your favorite cashier, the hostess at your Christmas gathering, and…well, you get my drift. There are just so many gifting opportunities.

A jar of Mulling Spices is such an easy to gift to make and appreciated by just about everyone…I mean, who doesn’t love spiced cider? And if they don’t like spiced cider, well…I just don’t know what to say!

But in all honesty, if cider isn’t their thing, they could just as easily add these Homemade Mulling Spices to wine as well!

You could pair the jar of homemade mulling spices with a Mulling Spice Ball. I got mine at Williams-Sonoma years ago, but they have this one that looks similar and Amazon has a very similar one as well.

So, let’s look at this mulling spices recipe:

This mulling spices recipe makes almost 16 ounces, so I divided it between 2 almost 8 ounces jars.
