I have simmered this mixture on the stove , at Christmas time, for 30 years.  It is the best, and makes our home smell so good.

4 cinnamon sticks

3 bay leaves

1/4 cup whole cloves

1/2 lemon

3 oranges, quartered

Fill pan up with water, bring to boil, and simmer all day.  Use for two days.  If you want to freshen it up, add some ground cinnamon and a sliced apple.
