Christmas Stove Top Potpourri

When I was younger every other Christmas my family and I made the long 14 hour trip to upstate New York to have Christmas with my Mothers family. My Grandmothers house always smelled so good(partly b/c she lives in a log cabin) but I think she has other smells too. Instead of just picking up the phone and asking her(duh) I decided to try to recreate it. In comes Pinterest.

I have a confession to make...I am addicted to Pinterest!! There I said it out loud! Ha Ha
Seriously, I am though! I found this recipe the other day and decided it was time to try it.

This is so simple and has made my house smell so good the last few days!

1 orange, quartered
1/2 cup cranberries
1 tsp cloves
3 sticks of cinnamon
A bit of ground nutmeg

Put all the ingredients in a pan and fill it with water. Put on the smallest burner, at the lowest setting.
Refill water as needed, do not let it run out of water!

One pan should last through the Christmas season.
