Pomander Fragrant Ball Gift

Historically used to ward off germs and evil, later used for aromatic smell and good luck gifts (history link below)

Pomander will dry in approximately a month in pristine condition, however, those w/ blemishes shall  rot. Cover entire surface with whole cloves (or make pattern if desired) leaving leaving app. 1/4 between cloves.  Sprinkle cinnamon over fruit.  Wrap cord around fruit and hang in dry location.  Wait one month - six weeks to ensure fruit is totally dry.  Tie ribbon around pomander to be displayed as decoration, stored in closet or for gift giving.
