Stained Glass Citrus Ornaments

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.

Arrange fruit slices on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Place in a 170-degree oven for 1 to 2 hours (it may take longer if high levels of liquid remain in the fruit).

• Speed the process by turning the slices after the first hour.
• Occasionally open the oven door to allow steam to escape.
