Culinary Recipes with Chef Nige: Open Heart Mulling Spice

Hi folks! with the Equinox behind us, it is time to dive right into fall and I am ready to get cozy.  It’s time for long pants, comfy sweaters, falling leaves and hot beverages. I have helped formulate a brand new Shoppe blend to help arm you during these cooler months, combining classic mulling spices with a special addition.  

Introducing our Open Heart Mulling Spice blend! Our new fall culinary addition combines classic mulling spices with gentle Hawthorn berries to keep you warm and smiling throughout these cooler months. Add Open Heart Mulling spice to wine, cider, or cocktails or make as a tea for a heart centered beverage you can sip all season long.  Lovely heart opening Hawthorn berries are combined with warm cinnamon, spicy cardamom, ginger, and floral anise.  Topped off with a pinch of orange peel citrus and black pepper, our blend is a wonderful addition to your gatherings and to give a little warmth and spice to your hot drinks.

Happy Fall everyone!

Nicole Worthington

Nicole Worthington has been drawn to the Pacific Northwest much of her life, but finally made the jump to Portland a few summers back. With a background in cooking, Yoga, and the healing power of food, Herbalism has been a wonderful addition to her life energetically and physically. The plants have provided much solace and healing during a time of loss and grief, as well as providing overall balance in the body and mind. Nicole is confident that Herbalism is the Peoples’ Medicine, and by making a cup of tea you are already denying oppressive systems that reject self care and complete wellness. Nicole has learned much from the plants and spends time honoring, listening, and being open to all the wisdom they have to offer. Nicole feels blessed to continue her journey with all the beautiful beings here at The Herb Shoppe and is excited to share the knowledge and insight she has learned with an open heart and mind.

When Nicole is not learning from the plants, she can be found immersed in a thrift store, goofing around with friends, or listening to records while playing in the kitchen. :)
