Fall-Winter Fragrant Potpourri

-Jessica Ceason

As simple as this potpourri is, it’s unbelievably fragrant. Using quality cinnamon sticks makes a difference. I choose mine from the local Co-Op, as the sticks are actual cinnamon rather than big-box retail stores that sell “cinnamon-scented sticks.” These, fresh cranberries, a few cloves, and an orange slice in water can simmer for hours in a mini crock pot. I have also used apple and pear slices in place of the orange. I like to keep cinnamon potpourris simple, being careful to choose fruits that compliment the strong scent of cinnamon, and not too many ingredients.
