I made this simmering pot in ceramics a long time ago. Today I went to Hobby Lobby looking for a diffuser. I didn't find one, but I bought sweet orange essential oil because I thought it would make a nice fragrance in the kitchen. I used it with a tea candle in my little simmering pot. The fragrance was light and pleasant but totally overpowered by the apples.
The apples are from our tree. The bowl with water in it also has salt to prevent the chopped apples from discoloring. This is about half of what we picked from the tree. We got about two WalMart bags of apples from the ground and took them to a kid who has chickens. They are cute puff-headed chickens...he said they are Polish chickens.
