Today I make Pomanders

Today I am making pomanders. Do you remember them from childhood? They always make the house smell like Christmas memories to me. Just get some oranges and whole cloves and push the pointed end of the clove into the orange’s peel. That’s it. You can add a ribbon or whatever if you want to get fancy. MMM. Smells good!

FYI I find that my local Asian market usually has the best and least expensive whole cloves. The ones I just bought were 99 cents for about a half cup of cloves. Good deal!

The pictures are of my work in process. You have to go a bit slow since pushing the clove in can be hard on your thumbs -unless you want to wear a leather thimble.
