You can also bag up some scoops to give away as a gift. You can buy those cute cellophane bags...this is just a baggie, but it works. My favorite way of using this is to simmer it. You can put a few scoops in a pan of water on the stove or put the pan in the oven at 200 degrees. Keep adding water to the pan. After several days of brewing this, it's best to throw away the used spices, clean up the pan and start over.
I have a small electric thing like a mini crockpot that I use for this. I keep it on my countertop and keep adding water...poor little crock needs some now, I think. I usually try to keep water to the top of it. I have done this for years, I usually start the simmering right after Thanksgiving. Boy, it sure makes my house smell like Christmas!
