Here’s the second winning recipe. I have this one brewing right now in a mini-crockpot in my kitchen. If this won’t put you in the Christmas spirit, you are a scrooge-grinch! It’s from Marsha York. She writes:
Here’s a great “recipe” to keep your home smelling great all holiday season. This also makes a great gift for a hostess.1 orange quarter1 cup fresh cranberries5 whole cinnamon sticks1 teaspoon of clovesPlace all ingredients in a pot and add two cups of water. Heat to a simmer. Keep a careful eye on the water level. As it evaporates, add more water. The ingredients will turn darker as days pass but no worries it will continue to smell wonderful. It should last though the holiday season.
