Easy Orange Pomanders

One of the things I really love about the holiday season is the smell of orange pomanders, cider, and spiced tea.

Orange pomanders are so easy to make that I usually let the kids make them each winter and do it without much guidance.


First you need an orange (we usually use a clementine aka cutie) and whole cloves. Then you push the cloves into the skin of the orange until only the clove head (the ball part) is still sticking out. You space them out fairly evenly, I usually put them a half inch apart from their neighbors.

Once all of the cloves are in it’s ready to be baked slowly on a really low temp. Essentially you’re dehydrating it and making a lot of good smell in the process. I typically use around 200 degrees for dehydrating it, but be careful to not leave it in there and then preheat the oven at 400 for dinner. Burned oranges smell terrible!
