You can smell Christmas here

Here's an easy recipe to get the smell of Christmas in your home. That is if you don't already have a wonderful aromatic tree.
I found it here, where there are plenty more ideas!

Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix
  • 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 
  • a bit of grated nutmeg if desired
1.    Quarter the orange. 
2.    Put all the ingredients into a saucepan.  Fill pan with water. 
3.    Place on the stove on the smallest burner, on the lowest setting. 
4.     Refill water as needed. Mine is on the Aga day and night: lovely!
I don't know if I'll be back before Christmas, but whether I do or don't:
                Merry Christmas!
