    I know what you are thinking. Stovetop Potpourri? Isn’t that the stuff my grandma had all dried out in a dish in the bathroom when I was growing up?

    Well, yes and no. That type of potpourri surely still does exist, but now there are other ways to get a delightful scent to fill a room.

    When I was making my Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Cranberry Relish, I couldn’t help but feel bad about throwing away all the garnishes I had on the serving platter. I also didn’t want the intoxicating aroma to end.

    Then I had a lightbulb moment.  I had seen an idea floating around on Pinterest that allows you to utilize your aromatics in a new way. They call it Stovetop Potpourri.

    The idea is simple, simmer a Dutch oven full of holiday aromatics on the stove. This allows the smells to waft through each and every room in your house.
