Make your own dried fruit at home with this simple recipe. Dried orange and lemon peels are a great addition to your pantry and can add extra flavour to loose-leaf teas, syrups, and even cocktails.
Oranges, for the peel
Simply heat your oven to 200ºF and line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone sheet.
Wash the fruit well and, using a vegetable peeler, remove long strips of the bright peel.
Spread them out onto the prepared pan and bake in the low oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until dry and slightly curled up at the edges. If the peels start to brown at, turn the oven off and leave them in the oven for a few minutes until dry.
Cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to one month. Enjoy!
