I love the smells of Christmas and my favorite way is simmering this easy to make potpourri in a small crock-pot.
You can simmer this on your stovetop if you like, but I'm always afraid I'll forget to turn it off so I started simmering it in a crock-pot. Works great and smells amazing.
I don't necessarily go by a recipe, I just add what I have on hand. Most of these ingredients are optional.Ingredients:
2-3 cups of water or fill your crock-pot about 3/4 full. I don't measure.
slices of an orange and the peeling
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
4 cinnamon sticks
1 Tbsp cloves
1 tsp vanilla
1 tea bag. I use this only if I have something fruity like orange or a berry tea that I'm trying to use up. Constant Comment would be good too.
Put everything in your crock-pot and let it simmer all day.
Add water as needed.
