BISMARCK, ND (KXNET) Some call it sweater weather, some call it soup season. Do you have what it takes to make your own homemade soup…or mull your own wine?

Mulling is when you heat wine, cider, or ale with spices that ultimately sweeten and add more flavor to the drink. Mulling spice mixes can be purchased ready to use, or you can create your own combination. The process is not unlike steeping tea and you and do this in a single cup or make a larger batch in a pot on your stovetop.

When it comes to making soups, Sam Hinz, the Store Manager at Ace Hardware North in Bismarck says that he really likes the Le Creuset pots, pans, and Dutch oven. These are made of porcelain enameled cast iron, which allows for even heating without the hassle of seasoning the cookware. Ace Hardware in Bismarck carries a wide array of Le Creuset products.
