Fruit Pomanders Notes

We made these for holiday craft projects in grade school. They also doubled as inexpensive handmade gifts.

Ingredients
Preparation Instructions

Mix all ground spices in shallow dish and set aside. Stud fruit with whole cloves spacing about 1/4" apart. Roll fruit in spice mix.

Helpful Hints

Using a knitting needle, skewer, or other sharp narrow object to poke holes in the fruit before inserting cloves will make this much easier.

Tie a festive ribbon around the fruit and hang as a holiday decoration. This will last for years and can be used in closets to ward off moths.

The Spice House . Said:

The fruit doesn't rot (or shouldn't; success rate for my pomander balls is around 80%) because the spices are a preservative.

I made this with my daughter when she was little. Now I would like to make it with my granddaughter. Where do I get the Orris Root Powder since it is not on your list?
