Simmering Holiday Potpourri gift in a jar

Stormy Stewart


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
