Happy Thanksgiving! Today we learn how to de-stink a dog after a skunk encounter and how to cook a turkey in a box. We'll also discuss Senate bill S 510, homemade gifts, this week's Ancestral Animal, Gardening by the Moon, and this week's Folktale.
Gary Sundblad Ya You Betcha Christmas from Me and My Drum
3 tbsp dried apple slices (see note) 1/2 cup pink and red carnation petals 1/4 cup dried sweet woodruff leaves 2 tbsp crumbled cinnamon or one 3" cinnamon stick 1 whole nutmeg, grated (1 1/2 tsps) 1 tbsp whole cloves 1 tbsp julienne orange peel 3 drops of cinnamon or vanilla scented oil
Note: To dry apples, slice paper thin and place slices in a single layer on a baking sheet in 150 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Mix dried apple slices with remaining ingredients. Store in a tightly covered glass jar.
For simmering potpourri, use a teaspoon potpourri per one cup of water. Place potpourri in water, bring to a boil and simmer on low until the whole house is perfumed; turn off heat. Strain and let dry if you wish to save and reuse the potpourri.
