Holiday Stove Top Potpourri

  • 4 cups water

  • 1 cup cranberries

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary (or pine needles, or even a trimming from your tree)

  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, or 1 vanilla bean

  • 1/2 teaspoon whole allspice (optional)

  • 2-4 whole star anise (optional)

* orange slices are pretty, but if you prefer you can eat the orange and just use the peels


Stove Top Directions

Add ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer uncovered for as long as you like, adding water as needed so the pot doesn’t run dry.


Slow Cooker Directions

Add dry ingredients to your crock pot. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil and then add it to the crock pot as well. Set the crock pot to low and add water as needed.


Merry Christmas!
