What you'll need:
- Apple peelings and core
- Cinnamon (whole or ground)
- Cloves (whole or ground)
Put the peelings and core into a pot and cover with water. I sprinkled cinnamon over it all and threw in some whole cloves. Throw in some cinnamon sticks if that's all you have or even throw in orange peelings. Bring to a boil and then turn down to the lowest setting and let simmer. Keep adding water as needed.
We couldn't believe how quickly this made our house smell delicious! I guess it's the same concept as potpourri, but I love the "recycling" factor of the peelings, especially since it's really too cold to take out the compost all the time.
