My newest favorite holiday addition to our home: the ever-simmering pot of holiday potpourri. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law pretty much continually have a similar pot going on their stoves this time of year, so I decided to try it this year. It’s so, so lovely.
First thing in the morning, right after after nursing and putting on my slippers, I’ve been adding a bit of water to the pot and turning it on simmer. Just keep it on low heat all day long, and just add water from the tea kettle every so often so it doesn’t get too dry or burn. These simple ingredients produce the most pleasant, wintry perfume that will just give you warm fuzzy feelings all day long.
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
A few bay leaves
1/8 cup whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tbsp whole all-spice
1 tsp ground nutmeg
Any other holiday spices
1 qt water
Put all ingredients into small pot, and simmer. Enjoy the holiday fragrance all day long!
