    Combine all the ingredients and let cook on low for 3-6 hours. 

     

    SIMMERING ON THE STOVE

    In a large stock pot combine all the ingredients and bring to a bowl then turn down and  let simmer on low for about 2+ hours.

    SERVE HOT

Recipe Notes

CAN I SUBSTITUTE CINNAMON STICKS FOR GROUND CINNAMON? 

Yeah, it will work, but it won't have the same delicious earthy flavor as a simmered cinnamon stick.
