    works great using a cone shaped coffee filter also. I just fold top a couple of times and staple. - 11/26/11

    Thank You Chef Meg for giving me a creative and calorie free gift idea for the people who work with me! Every year I try to do something homemade AND inexpensive for the 20 people I work with in my department. Your simmer sachet is this years gift! - 12/14/11

    Giving the nutrition information for the recipe is this intended as a craft or a food.
    Sure it smells good I would never drink it though. I use my old spices for sachets and fresh for recipes. I think this could be expanded to explain its intended use.
