I was a little late this year in drying my orange slices sufficiently in time for the holidays. Rather than dry them in the oven and use precious (and expensive!) electricity I opted for the slow drying method using the top of the radiator. Since I had never attempted to dry fruit in this manner, I started off by sacrificing (slicing) only one orange to see whether or not this process was effective. It took days. And days. And then more days. In fact, it took so long let's just say that I will be one step closer to making the beautiful garland below for the new house for the holidays in 2014!
Or one of these two below. Or all three!!! I better get started now drying more oranges!
