What else can I add to this simmering potpourri gift?

  • Evergreen Tree Sprigs: We have an evergreen that I like to snip small branches from to add to my simmering spices. 
  • Other Citrus and Fruit: Dried lemons, Limes, apples or Pears would work great. 
  • Essential Oils: Add one scent like orange or apple to enhance the sweetness.
  • Apple juice: When simmering, use apple juice in place of water.

Ingredients for Simmering Holiday Potpourri

You only need a handful of ingredients to make this potpourri mix. Make sure to use whole spices, not ground. Ground spices will turn into a sludge and you won’t be able to reuse the potpourri.

 

Fresh Cranberries – You can substitute frozen if using immediately, but use fresh for jars.

Dehydrated Orange Slices – You can substitute fresh orange slices if using immediately, otherwise use dried orange slices. Check out my recipe for dried orange slices to make your own.

Sprigs Rosemary –  Use fresh rosemary for the best added scent.

Cinnamon Sticks –  A warm scent of comfort, cinnamon sticks can be found in the spice aisle at your local supermarket.

Whole Cloves – Adds a sweet and spicy aroma, can be found in the spice aisle at your local supermarket..

Star Anise – Smells of licorice, you can find this in the spice aisle at your local supermarket.

Substitute one fresh clementine for dehydrated orange slices if using immediately.
