Simmering Stovetop Potpourri


Christmas Potpourri
In a small saucepan add:
  • 1 cut up orange (you can also slice the orange)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, broken in half (I think it releases more of the fragrance)
  • 1 cup of fresh cranberries
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons cloves (whole or ground)
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons nutmeg
Water to fill to about 1 inch below the rim. (You could also use apple juice or cider!)
Place on stove and simmer on low. 

Williams Sonoma Signature Scent Potpourri
In a small saucepan add:
  • 1 – 2 sliced up lemons
  • 2 – 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons vanilla
Water to about 1 inch below the rim. Place on stove and simmer on low.

Just collect and cut up a few branches of pine needles (as many as will fit in your pot).
To your pot of branches, add any or as many of the following: orange peels, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cinnamon sticks, cranberries and juniper berries. Fill the pot of pine and spices 3/4 full of water and set uncovered over a low flame to simmer. dd more water whenever the level starts getting low. I turn off and cover the pot overnight, then fire it up again in the morning.
