Gather the ingredients.
Place bay leaf, thyme, sage into a spice or coffee grinder and pulverize into a powder.
Combine the spices with the remaining ingredients in a saucepan.
Simmer over medium heat for five minutes, stirring often. The salt should be dissolved at this point. If not, let the mixture simmer for another 2 minutes.
Remove saucepan from heat and let the mixture cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
