How to dry oranges:
- Cut the oranges into thin slices (4-5 mm).
- Dry them a little with a cloth, and arrange them in a shallow pan in which you have previously put baking paper.
- Dry at 100°C for about 3 hours
- Turn the orange slices from time to time so that they dry on both sides at the same time.
You can also dry other citrus fruits such as lemon or grapefruit in the same way.
You can use dried oranges to make Christmas ornaments and decorate your home.
