Dried Orange Slices

Dried orange slices are so easy to make and look fabulous. They are easy to make at home and will last for years if you look after them. Dried orange slices are perfect for decorating cakes and bakes, for being used as a garnish on your Christmas cocktails or being used for decorations around the home. I love using them as decorations on Christmas presents too.

Equipment

  • chopping board
  • knife
  • Kitchen Paper

Ingredients

  • 4 Oranges

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 80*C and remove the shelves. 
  • Slice the oranges into 5-8mm slices. It looks thick but when they dry out they will go a lot thinner.
  • Once the pieces are sliced put them on kitchen paper and absorb as much juice as you can. 
  • Place the orange slices on the oven shelves.
  • Pop in the oven for approximately 3 hours. But check the orange and turn them over after 45 minutes and then leave them. Check after each hour.
  • Allow them to cool and enjoy using them as decorations.

Notes

In the UK the oven temperature is 80 degrees celsius. For American and those cooking on fahrenheit cookers I would recommend it being about 175 degrees fahrenheit.
