When Fall arrives, the air takes on a freshness, emitted by the trees that equals no other. To bring some of Nature’s wonderful fragrance into my home, I like to simmer a little pot of potpourri. You can do this right in your kitchen with spices that you probably already have in your pantry.
I like to use Bay Laurel, Cinnamon, Cloves, thyme, rosemary, fresh lemon and orange peels, even apple peels are good. You do not need to use all of them, just a few will do.
I like to slice the orange or lemon peel from the orange, and bend it over the pot so that the aromatic oils infuse into the mixture. ( be careful not to get it in your eyes)
You can simmer it on low with some water. It will bring a lovely aroma into your home, and everyone will think you made some cookies! We could even smell it outside, all the way to the curb.
