I love this potpourri mixture. I like that it has some citrus in it. The original recipe I found did not include nutmeg, I just tried it one time and really liked it. This is a great way to get your house smelling like the holidays! It also makes a great gift. Just place all of the ingredients in a container (leaving orange whole) and include directions.
Holiday Stove Top Potpourri
- one whole orange or just the orange peel
- 1/2 cup cranberries
- 1 Tbsp. whole cloves
- 3 sticks of cinnamon or a small handful of small pieces of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of grated nutmeg, if desired
Quarter the orange. Put all the ingredients into a saucepan or crock pot. Fill pan with water. Place on the stove on the smallest burner, on the lowest setting. Refill water as needed.
