Slice of heaven

Fragrant slices of dehydrated fresh citrus resemble little stained glass windows. Our easy, effective technique produces colorful results.

Stained Glass Citrus
The name refers to the translucent quality of the citrus slices.

You will need:



• 1 lemon
• 1 orange
• 1 lime
• Clean kitchen towel
• Parchment paper or silicone mat
• Cookie sheet

Using a sharp knife, make very thin slices of the citrus fruits. Cut crosswise across citrus to expose the triangular sections. Fold slices within clean kitchen towel and press gently, but firmly, to soak up as much excess liquid as possible.

The aroma from these has got to be just devine. I love it........use essential oils when they are done drying. Cinnamon, anise, cedar, frankinsence etc. It's what I'm doing this year! I'm also using grapevine and porceline berry vines for garlands. Very pretty.
