It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas…Or it at least it soon will with the help of this recipe for homemade potpourri. Cinnamon, orange, nutmeg, cloves, and cranberries lend themselves to this uniquely warm scent. Fill your home with the holiday spirit by simmering this on your stove top just hours before guests arrive.
In a small saucepan add:
1 cut up orange (you can also slice the orange)
3 cinnamon sticks, broken in half (I think it releases more of the fragrance)
1 cup of fresh cranberries
1 – 2 teaspoons cloves (whole or ground)
1 – 2 teaspoons nutmeg
Water to fill to about 1 inch below the rim. (You could also use apple juice or cider!)
Place on stove and simmer on low.
