A Love Potion

Well, I should make an effort to live up to my Blog's name and give you a proper little spell worthy of a Kitchen Witch:

"When the time comes, warm this potion and give to the one whose love you would sweeten and warm." (I suppose you could have some too.)

"Add to red wine, 1 teaspoon of each:
Rosemary, Anise, Clove, honey, Orange rind, ground Cumin, And 3 green leaves from a rose geranium.
Bring to a simmer and stir deosil while counting to 91. Cool til the brew stops steaming, then strain."

I have to admit I never tried that potion, but whether it works or not, it must smell divine just brewing it up.
Thanks to Gruenwold Cottage's Kitchen Witch for the recipe.

Oooh, it sounds yummy... but wherever do you find green leaves from a rose geranium? I don't happen to have one of those around.

I honestly have no idea...
I guess I'd hunt around my neighborhood's flower/botanic stores.
Or most likely, I'd go the lazy, free-spirited way and replace them with rose petals. It's really the intentions you put in a potion that makes it work. Or so they say.
