It's so healthy and hearty and pretty darn beautiful, don't you think?!
I love that this recipe makes a ginormous batch that just gets better with age as all of the comforting spices blend together.
It's super easy to make, too! Just a bit of chopping, then throw it all in a pot and let the magic happen.
