Holiday Stovetop Potpourri
- dried lemon peel
- whole cloves
- dried cranberries
- cinnamon sticks
- dried orange peel
Place in a pot filled with water and bring to a boil, turn the stove down and allow it to simmer as the fragrance fills your home with FRESH ingredients for the season!
For a summer recipe you can use
Citrus rinds including:
and other ingredients like fragrant flower petals.
I use peony and Lilacs. I hang them upside down to dry before the wind blows them apart in my yard. I can keep them in a container and lightly mist them with water to make the fragrance come up but normally I stick them in jars and put them on the stove on a dreary day, making the house smell like spring!
***Be sure to set a timer to check the water so you don’t burn your pot. You can leave this on all day but you will have to add water as it simmers down***
