Today we carved out our orange pomanders.  Using a biro draw a pattern onto your orange.  Then using an orange peeler trace over your pattern, just cutting into the flesh.

Then outline the carving with cloves.  Use a split pin to hang a pretty ribbon onto the pomander open the two legs and push into the skin on the top of your orange, hang up to dry out.

We also went to see an old friend, the children were armed with home made gifts and I went with An organic black currant jam I made from our garden.
