I wanted to make a small little something for our couple friends this year. So, of course I perused Pinterest until I found a neat little gift.

The above photo is the actual photo from Pinterest. My jars did not turn out quite so cute.
You will need 2 lemon wedges, 1 lime slice and 2 orange slices per jar.
Then add 3 cinnamon sticks, 2-3 tbsp. whole cloves and 3 bay leaves.
No matter what I'm making, I always make a mess.
Put all the above ingredients into a pint size jar and add water.
I did not include a small strip of fabric under my lids, but I did tie some twine around the lid. I also created labels with instructions. Per the original post, the instructions should say the following:
Pour contents into saucepan on stove top and simmer
on low heat, add water as needed.
Refrigerate to keep fresh.
I, of course, made a jar for myself to test out. I didn't want to gift some disgusting smelling concoction. So, just empty the contents of one jar into a saucepan, simmer and enjoy. It smells delightful.
