Don't toss the peels!

It is clementine season! I just bought a BIG crate of them for $5 at the grocery store, and the kids love them because they can peel them themselves and they have no seeds.

It might not look pretty, but it smells so good!
Instead of throwing away your citrus peels, toss them into a pot of water with some cinnamon (and/or nutmeg, cloves, etc.) and simmer on your stove for a lovely and natural air freshener. My mom used to do this during the holiday seasons, so it reminds me of my childhood. I hope my kids will have the same memory!
