After my friend Heather mentioned a potpourri she was simmering at her house this morning, I rummaged in the pantry to see if I could create some of my own...
It is definitely smelling like Christmas
in our schoolroom this afternoon! :-)
Christmastime Simmering Potpourri
zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons red hot cinnamon candies
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a small saucepan, combine ingredients with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil and stir until candies are melted. Reduce heat to simmer. Enjoy the sweet smell of Christmas all through the house!
Remember to keep an eye on the potpourri,
and add water as needed.
