Fruit Pomanders Recipe

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.

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?

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