I remember when I was quite young in the early 50's the Girl Scouts made these pomanders. They were oranges studded with whole cloves.
I made one for my parents for Christmas. Many years later while clearing out Moms' home when she went to the nursing home, I discovered this in a box that Dad had made for it in a closet. Even after all that time, some 45+ years it still eas intact with a fragnance. Then about 15-20 yrs. ago I made one for my husband. Ditto to this day.
However, I recently made one for our kitchen table with the idea of making some more for there. However, the orange is souring already. Am I forgetting how I did it, or what?
Does anyone recall this old-fashioned craft? I'd sure like to make more, also for gifts.
Be safe and have a terrific week-end!
