Tips on Making Dehydrated Orange Slices

  • Follow the directions to a T and don’t rush the process. You could potentially ruin the orange slices if you do so by burning them or not fully dehydrating them.
  • Make sure to use ripe oranges to get the best results. Plus, using ripe oranges will make the dry oranges last long after dehydrated.

Ingredients

Navel oranges – (enough for your project or craft)
Turbinado sugar (raw) – (enough to cover oranges when sliced)

How to Make Dried Orange Slices

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Slice navel oranges into approximately 1/4 inch slices.
