I love putting a pot of spices onto the stove and letting it simmer away as I bake and decorate our house for the holidays. Usually I just toss a few cinnamon sticks into the pot, but this year, I thought I’d hunt down a few new recipes. Imagine my surprise when I found just two or three recipes, all of them similar. It was high time, I figured, that someone pull together some fun new scents for stove top simmering potpourri. So, here 7 recipes made with ingredients you likely already have in your house. From Key lime pie to cranberry-almond potpourri, you’ll be able to have a new Christmas-themed scent every day of the week with these splendidly scented recipes.
If you feel concerned about leaving your homemade potpourri simmering on the stovetop, the recipes will also work in the slowcooker. Just double the spices, halve the water, and heat it on low without a lid on top. Easy as can be!
