FOUND: Christmas Balls

Orange Pomanders aka Christmas Balls

Only my most favorite Christmas decorative item... One of my childhood xmas memories included trying to take a bite out of one.  Not recommended.  

If you are looking to eat your holiday decorations... I would recommend starting with the Gingerbread house. 

(FYI: IKEA has an excellent, easy-to-make version) 


1-Roll the orange in your hands to warm it: this makes it easier to push the cloves into it. 

2-Use a thick needle, to poke holes into the orange - easier than using the clove itself

3- Once the ball is made:  roll your clove-studded orange in a mixture of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
