Neighbor Gifts

Our cozy brick house is in an older neighborhood with mostly older neighbors. Last year for neighbor gifts I distributed chocolate turtles. This year I got to thinking that some of our neighbors may be on special diets. That is when I decided to do a nonfood gift. Something useful, pretty and easy. I dried apple slices, oranges, and lemons with a friend’s food dehydrator and then found the following recipe to create a lovely Christmas scent.

5 cinnamon sticks
1 dried lemon slice
1 dried orange slice
1/2 cup whole cloves
1 tbs. nutmeg
1/4 cup whole allspice
1 tbs. bay leaf pieces
3 dried apple slices
Combine ingredients. Add water to simmer on stovetop.
