One of the things I like to do around the holidays is create a potpourri to simmer on the kitchen stove. I love that the inviting smells filter throughout the house. It is just yummy and fat free. I don’t gain weight from these smells like I do from the other holiday baking that I do each year.
One of my very favorite things to do is to place a pot on the stove to simmer. I place oranges that we have studded with whole cloves in the pot. Then I toss in a couple of cinnamon sticks and add some water. After that, I turn the stove on low and just let it simmer away. I do check on it every so often to make sure that the water hasn’t all boiled away or evaporated. The spicy aroma is just right and we love it. My skin also appreciates the little bit of extra humidity that is infused in the air. We have a dry climate and every little bit of moisture helps. 😉
