Stove Top Holiday Potpourri
I had no idea how easy it was to make potpourri on the stove. Pretty sure I will never go back to bagged potpourri again after trying it.
To make Stove Top Holiday Potpourri right on the stove in your home, here’s what you need:
- Orange – sliced
- Handful of Fresh Cranberries
- Couple of Cinnamon Sticks
- Tablespoon of Whole Cloves
- Sprinkle of Nutmeg (I didn’t have this on hand but it still smelled amazing!)
- 2-3 Cups of Water
Put everything in a pan and simmer over low heat while the scents fill the air. Trust me, you are going to want to have this on hand all the time.
I added 2 cups of water and it lasted for a good three hours. Then I poured on more water and simmered it for another two hours.
When I was done for the day, I tossed it into a Ziploc® Container to save for next time. Which will be tonight.
The best part is that it makes a great homemade gift too! You can toss all the items, minus the orange, into a Ziploc® Baggie or Container so it’s ready for gift giving. Ziploc® even has a printable you can add to you a storage bag, complete with directions!
