Thyme & Seasons Holiday Stovetop Potpourri

Thyme & Seasons Holiday Stovetop Potpourri
¼ cup whole cloves
¼ cup cinnamon chips
¼ cup allspice berries
¼ cup whole rosehips
¼ cup dried orange peel
¼ cup dried lemon peel
1 tablespoon cardamom seeds
1 tablespoon aniseed
6-8 bay laurel leaves

Combine all ingredients and store in lidded container. To use, bring 3 cups water to a boil in an old pan. Add 2-3 tablespoons of potpourri and a sliced apple, if you wish. Reduce heat to a simmer, and add water as necessary to keep it from boiling dry. Mixture may be stored in refrigerator between uses (don't drink it!) Makes about 1¾ cup potpourri, enough for the rest of the holiday season!
