Holiday Potpourri Recipe

Make your home smell great during the holiday season by gently simmering holiday potpourri fruit and spice mixture on the stove.  I usually start using this potpourri mixture the week of Thanksgiving and keep using it through Christmas. After a few days the mixture will turn dark and begin to lose its smell — you’ll need to toss it out and make a new batch for the best scent.
