I have purchased dried orange slices in the past, but it's so easy to do. No special equipment is necessary.
I used oranges, lemons and limes, but the oranges were the most successful.
Here's how to do it:
- Slice fruit thinly.
- Blot with kitchen paper.
- Place on wire racks on top of baking sheets to collect any drips.
- Put in a low oven (140C) for 3 to 4 hours, checking that the fruit does not go brown.
- (Fruit should be a little soft when it is finished, to allow you to put wires or ribbon through it.)
- Remove from oven and let cool.
