    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups liquid potpourri
    • 4 (1/4 ounce) packages knox gelatin
    • paste food coloring (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 1 cup of the liquid potpourri almost to a boil (Note: the concentrated type retains its smell more effectively).
    2. 2
      Stir in 1 package of the gelatin at a time, completely mixing after each addition.
    3. 3
      When all packets have been stirred in, add the 2nd cup of liquid potpourri.
    4. 4
      Pour into decorative containers, cover, and put in the fridge until set.
    5. 5
      WARNING: Your fridge will smell like the potpourri, so make sure there are no foods in the fridge that will be adversely affected.
    6. 6
      These can be put in small baby food jars that you decorate, or you can put it in new, small 1/2 pint decorative jelly jars.
    7. 7
      Put a piece of eyelet lace (or comparable breathable fabric) on the top and screw down the ring; if giving as a gift, I would put the canning lid on, then the lace and ring.
    8. 8
      These can be decorated as you like, and complementary paste food coloring added to intensify the color; for example: blue for blueberry muffin, red for cinnamon spice.

      I made TONS of these 8 years ago, but have misplaced my recipe. In the recipe I used, you also add a small amount of vodka. The vodka serves 2 purposes...it intensifies the aroma of the potpourri AND keeps the gel jars from growing mold.

      Fun, easy and I only wish I had some pretty containers! I had to use undecorated jars which work well, but don't look all that hot. It's ok, I'll make these again; I LOVE them. I let mine gel in the garage - worked perfectly. Since, like all aromatics, the scent will eventually dissipate, I close them up if I'm either leaving the house or will otherwise not be in their vicinity. I'm hoping the cats don't mind, but if you know cats, you agree that they'll let me know if they object ... likely in one of various unpleasant ways. *lol* Thank you for posting, UC!

      Great gift item. I made these for teacher gifts for teacher appreciation week. Easy to make and directions were easy to follow. I used ocean breeze scent and decorated the jars with tiny seashells. The scent was really strong at first but as with any other potpourri item, the scent fades over time. :)
