Stormy's notes for this recipe:
This is a wonderful gift for anyone who likes the holiday cooking smell anytime. Is wonderful added to a pot over an open fire also, like when camping in the fall. We also warn this up when watching a Christmas movie. Keep it in a Mason jar so it will stay fresh. Makes 12 half pint or 6 pint jars or 3 qts

Holiday potpourri
To use, simply scoop ½ of mix into a small pot, and cover with a few inches of water. Allow to simmer on low heat on your stovetop, adding water as the potpourri reduces down. You can also use a small potpourri-sized crock pot.
