Hi! I’m just popping in with a quick post to share an easy stovetop potpourri recipe.
This potpourri is actually wonderful any time from autumn through winter. With citrus and layers of spices, it will warm up your home. This is a natural, non-toxic way to make your whole home smell heavenly.
A few tips before we get to the recipe: The amounts for these ingredients are flexible. However, Star Anise is very strong. I don’t recommend using more than 3 seed pods. The best place to find these spices is in the Hispanic area of your grocery store. Not only will the quality be wonderful, the prices will be, too. For example, the cinnamon I buy in the Hispanic area of the store is not only bigger, but it is much, much more affordable.
Winter Stovetop Potpurri
A warming potpourri scent filled with citrus and spice.
- 1 small orange or lemon, sliced
- 1 cup of whole, raw cranberries
- 1 tablespoon of whole cloves
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 3 star of anise dried seed pods
- 3 whole cinnamon sticks
- Add all of your ingredients to a large sauce pan.
- Fill the pot 3/4 way full of water.
- Put the pot on a stove burner on the low setting.
- As the pot steams or simmers, it will fill your home with a beautiful, natural aroma.
- Don’t allow the pot of water to boil. Don’t leave it unattended. You will need to add more water, depending on how long you allow the potpourri to simmer. Don’t allow the water to burn off completely.
