This homemade potpourri can be enjoyed around the holidays simmering on a stove top or all winter long in a dish. It's a perfect project for a cold afternoon at home and will fill your home with fragrance!

There are no right or wrong ingredients when it comes to potpourri, however, I love this combination of fruits and spices in fall and winter. It is both beautiful and fragrant, which makes it a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.

Ingredients

- Cloves
- Cinnamon sticks
- Star anise
- Oranges
- Apples

Instructions

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Slice apples and oranges (really) thin. Place in a single layer on cookie sheets and bake for an hour and a half, check every half hour thereafter.
Once dry, mix with your spices. Put everything in a jar and allow to "marinate" for a day before gifting.

Tips

Potpourri can be placed in a dish for up to a few months or boil 2 cups water, add potpourri and reduce to a simmer for one-time use. Get a little extra life out of your dried potpourri by using the stovetop method before disposing of it.
