Ingredients from pantry for simmering potpourri

Directions:

Simply add all your ingredients into a small pot, add water until it reaches an inch or two below the rim. Set the pot on your stove and bring the water to a simmer, then drop the heat down to low.

 

 


The cranberries will pop when they get hot.

I leave my Potpourri on the stove for 3-5 days adding water whenever it gets low. You could also use a small crockpot instead of the stovetop.

That’s all there is to it. Simple and easy and smells like going home for Christmas to me.

 

 

 


It’s pretty too!

Until next time,
