Fruit Pomanders Recipe

Fruit Pomanders Notes

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


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.
