A sachet bag filled with herbs, spices, and other aromatics is an easy-as-it-gets way to add flavor to simmering soups, poaching liquids, or mulled wine. Grab the kitchen twine and some cheesecloth and let’s sachet!
Calories 7 kcal
4-6 parsley stems chopped 1 bay leaf 1 teaspoon black, pink, or white peppercorns 4-6 whole cloves optional 1 star anise optional cotton or hemp unwaxed twine 4" square of cheesecloth
Place the herbs and aromatics in the center of the square of cheesecloth. Gather the corners together to make a small pouch, tying it tightly with twine. Keep one length of the twine long enough to tie to one of the pot handles, for easy removal.
