Why not make pomanders at the same time, to use the oven space. I use satsumas as they are not as big as oranges and using a kebab stick ,stab the skin and put a clove in it. Do this all over but not too close as they shrink when they dry, you can make patterns if you wish.When tie thin ribbon round them and hang them on your tree or pile into a bowl for a table decoration, or make a gift of them. They smell gorgeous,quintessentially christmasy. Sun 27 Dec 2009 12:49:48 GMT+1
