How to Dehydrate Orange Slices in the Oven

Ingredients

  • Oranges

All you need is oranges! Isn’t that amazing? On occasion, I do like to sprinkle the oranges with sugar or spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice can create a cozy smell for the holiday season.

Directions

  1. Start by preheating oven to 200 F.
  2. Rinse and wash oranges.
  3. With a sharp knife or mandolin, slice oranges into thin slices of equal width.
  4. Lay a piece of parchment paper or non-stick silicon baking mat onto a baking sheet. Lay orange slices on parchment paper with space between each slice.
  5. Put baking sheet into oven for ~2 1/2 hours until oranges are completely dry. Thicker slices will need longer to bake.
