Like many other types of fruit you can dry citrus like oranges, lemons and limes. It makes for a interestingly chewy product that can be very tart and biting. While not my favorite type of dried produce it can make for an interesting component of a homemade trail mix or camping food.
Drying out citrus is a lot like drying other produce with some of the same basic steps.
Select only the best ripe citrus like you would with other types of fruit and carefully wash.
Next slice the citrus into even quarter inch thick slices and then cut those slices in half again so you have a bunch of half slices. Sometimes you will have to remove seeds before you begin drying.
After you have the half slices you still need to completely remove the rind so you just have the actual fruit itself.
Place on the dehydrator trays with space in between each slice and dry for 6-8 hours depending on your unit.
Place dried slices in a jar with a good seal so they don’t go bad and enjoy.
