Easy Holiday DIY: Anise and Clove Oranges

December 15, 2011

Need an easy holiday decorating/gift project?  These anise and clove oranges are an old fashioned favorite.  Simply grab a few medium sized oranges and a jar of Star Anise and a jar of Cloves.  Push the Cloves in a decorative pattern into the oranges and accent with Star Anise.  Display the finished oranges together in a bowl – the fragrance is amazing – or wrap individual oranges in a 1/4 yard of sturdy tuile fabric and tie with a pretty ribbon.  These can be hung near a doorway for good luck, and presented as an elegant stocking stuffer.  In most cases, the oranges will dry out over time if they are covered about 60% or more with cloves, otherwise they are perishable.
