Does winter sometimes bring you down? Make your home smell wonderful with a simmering pot – it’s inexpensive, it’s natural (no chemicals), and it can be a gift idea!
A pot or crock-pot
An empty mason or recycled jar (optional for preserving or gift)
First slice up your oranges.
Next slice up your apples.
Put all the fruit slices in your pot with some cinnamon sticks.
Fill the pot up with water.
Put it on your stove.
Turn your stove on to simmer. Once the water warms up, it will start emitting the wonderful smell. ***A word of caution – keep an eye on it, you need to keep adding water through out the day to it as it evaporates out.
Or I like to use a crock-pot instead. Turn it on warm or low and keep the lid off so the smell fills your home. You still will need to keep an eye on it and add water as it evaporates.
If you want to store it or give it as a gift. Put the fruit and cinnamon sticks in a jar.
Fill the jar with water and put the lid on.
You can keep it in your refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
