Tip of the Day: Simmering Scents

pineapple_orange_zestGive your home a quick little lift by using up some of the fruit sitting on your counter.  Toss citrus zest (I like to cut it in long thin strips) and your choice of whole sweet spices (think cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) into a pan of simmering water and breath in the aroma of Christmas!

After 30 minutes, add more water or turn off the heat as the spices will burn if they are not always in at least 1″ of water.
