  • 4 Cinnamon Sticks

  • 2 Whole Cloves

  • 4 Cardamom Pods (Optional)

  • 1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Nutmeg

Simmer water and cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla, and pumpkin puree for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes. Strain through fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth, pressing with the bottom of a ladle to extract as much liquid as possible.
