My mom has made this potpourri for as long as I can remember. Every fall she brings the smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves into the house. It’s the benefit smell of baking with none of the cleanup.
In a kettle add each of the following:
4 cups of water
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp whole cloves
1 tbsp Craisins (optional: this really only adds color, not any smell)
1 tsp ground cloves
Simmer this mixture on low. It will last for a couple of hours. If the water gets low, simply add more and continue to use the potpourri.
