3 boxes (1 ounce each) cinnamon sticks 6 whole nutmeg (1 ounce) 1/3 cup each chopped dried orange and lemon peel 1/4 cup each whole allspice and whole cloves 2 tablespoon finely chopped, crystallized ginger (1 ounce)

Cut doubled layers of cheesecloth into fourteen 5-inch squares. Have fourteen 10-inch-long pieces plain white string ready. Put cinnamon sticks and nutmeg in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or a small heavy skillet until broken in small pieces. Mix with remaining ingredients. Tie 3 generous tablespoonsful in each cheesecloth square.
