    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    When peeling apples for cooking/baking/snacking, don't discard the peels. Instead, multi-purpose them to make this aromatic potpourri that smells like a freshly-baked apple pie. Use it as a real estate selling tactic, to set the mood for a party or simply for your own enjoyment. It's easy to make and all-natural.

      I already do this, and it's wonderful, especially during the winter months. In winter, I have to add a bit of humidity to the air in my home, and this helps. One addition I do make to the "recipe", is that I also freeze my orange peels and add them to the mix.
