We've had requests for how to make the Simmering Sachet from our post about homemade, elegant Christmas gifts.
Recipe for 24 Simmering Sachet Christmas Gifts
5 oranges sliced into 1/4 inch circles
2 bags fresh cranberries
72 cinnamon sticks
1 jar whole cloves
1 jar whole allspice berries
clear cellophane treat bags
clear 9 oz. SOLO cups
To dry your fruit, place cooling racks on several baking sheets and spread the fruit into single layers. Prop your oven door open slightly and bake at 170 F for several hours until dry. Check it occasionally - fruit should not be sticky.
When fruit is dried, place 2 orange slices, a handful of cranberries, 3 cinnamon sticks, 4 cloves and 6 allspice berries in a clear treat bag. Tie with coordinating ribon, place into 9 oz. SOLO cup and include a note with directions to pour into a pot of water and let simmer for a wonderful Holiday Aroma.
For an elegant Christmas gift presentation, put some double stick tape or a glue dot on the SOLO cup and slide into Christmas Dessert Skirtz cupcake wrappers.
