|How great that this article recycled the week before Christmas. Heres an idea for what to do with cloves. When I was a child my mother did a craft with me where we stuck an orange with cloves, completely covering it. Then while still moist rolled it in cinnamon with a bit of nutmeg til some spices stuck to flesh of orange. Hang on a ribbon to dry and keep closets smelling nice. Now that mom is 87 and has moved to a nursing home -- and she has become blind -- this is a great idea for a Christmas gift. She could at least smell it even though she can't see and it would maybe reawaken memories that dementia has taken. I would not have thought of this I'd I hadn't read this article, I love ATP!|
