Here is a simple (and inexpensive) gift that is sure to warm the homes of anyone that is lucky enough to receive it.
Just take the ingredients above and add a few more items and you have yourself sweet smelling holiday potpourri.
Supplies for Simple Holiday Potpourri:
- One large apple
- One large orange
- One large lemon
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 6 or 7 cloves
- 6 whole allspice berries
- 2 pieces of fresh gingerroot (this is optional)
Wrap these all up in cellophane and attach a holiday bow. If you want, you can also add a sprig of evergreen and some fake berries. Next make a tag with the following instructions:
1. Cut fruit into 1/2-inch thick slices.
2. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and cover with water.
3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer uncovered, adding water throughout the day as needed.
*Please never leave simmering potpourri unattended
