Clove-Studded Oranges

For centuries, people have used clove-studded fruits, called pomanders, to naturally add fragrance to their homes, especially at Christmastime. Traditional pomanders are studded with cloves, covered with a special spice mix and allowed to dry. For easy-to-prepare pomanders, use a metal skewer or nail to create a spiral design on the oranges. Insert whole cloves into each hole. One way to display the pomanders is in a clear glass bowl.
