Spice bag \"gift decorations\"

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 teaspoon Whole cloves
1 teaspoon Whole allspice
1 \N Orange , zest of
1 \N Cinammon stick, cut up (I use wire cutters)

This year I copped out and gave gift certificates at work. To add a more personal touch, I included these spice bags, which were a hit. They're basically from my BH&G cookbook, and function as "spice teabags" for mulled wine, mulled cider, etc. (one bag is enough for 2 quarts of cider) Even if they're not used, they're still cute and they smell good.

roll all ingredients up in a 6-7" square of cheesecloth: (double layer of cheesecloth if it's the really flimsy kind).

tie the bag with a length of string or colored cotton yarn (rinse the yarn in boiling water first, so it won't fade). tuck in another cinammon stick around the "neck" of the bag. good luck trying to use the rest of the bottles of allspice and cloves that you bought just for this little project :) Catherine
