Smells like the Holidays!

I absolutely love the smell of the holidays. You know, when you walk into a store and it smells like cinnamon and allspice. Ah, it's amazing.

I've recreated a way to bring that wonderful smell into your home. I'll admit, it's amazing. Some people like to do these homemade potpourris on the stove top, but knowing me I have to use my crockpot :) We have a small appetizer size crockpot that I'm using and it's perfect! Most crockpots have a high, low or warm setting. If you're using one like that, keep it on warm. Our small one doesn't have any settings - it's just off or on. So, we just check on it to make sure there is enough water to keep it from burning. Same rules apply if you were to do this on the stovetop.

Here's the recipe - Enjoy!!

Smells like the Holidays

1 apple
1 orange
1 lemon
2 T whole allspice
2 T whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
Slice fruit into rings. Don't worry about peels, seed, cores, etc. Place all ingredients into a crock-pot. Fill with water. Simmer on low. Refill with water as needed.  Be careful not let the water get too low.

Happy Holidays!!
