If you ever have apples and/or oranges that get left behind, forgotten or too old, don't just throw them out, make homemade potpourri! You can omit or add to this recipe but it is a super simple recipe with instructions how to make a dry potpourri as well as a simmering potpourri. Mmm!
Apple Spice Potpourri
3 tbsp dried apple slices (see note)
2 tbsp crumbled cinnamon or one 3" cinnamon stick
1 whole nutmeg, grated (1 1/2 tsps)
1 tbsp whole cloves
1 tbsp julienne orange peel
3 drops of cinnamon or vanilla scented oil
Note: To dry apples, slice paper thin and place slices in a single layer on a baking sheet in 150 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Mix dried apple slices with remaining ingredients. Store in a tightly covered glass jar.
For simmering potpourri, use a teaspoon potpourri per one cup of water. Place potpourri in water, bring to a boil and simmer on low until the whole house is perfumed; turn off heat. Strain and let dry if you wish to save and reuse the potpourri.
