Reviews forSpicy Cranberry Warmer
"This is great for those crisp fall days. Thank you for sharing."
"Substituted ground cinnamon and nutmeg for the cinnamon sticks and allspice, and then put those into a coffee filter inside of a tea strainer. It actually worked, too! Very good, my picky little brother even liked it. A bit sweet though, might use less brown suger next time."
