Every year my mom makes “the smelly holiday stuff.” This is a wonderful tradition in the MacNair household.
All you do is
- get a huge pot of water
- cut up some oranges and apples
- add some full cloves and cinnamon sticks
- and bring to a simmer.
You can keep this going for weeks at a time. You just have to make sure you keep adding water when it gets low or you will ruin your pot. Its a delicious smell that always reminds me of Christmas and the holidays!
