Directions for Dried Oranges

  1. First, preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place an oven safe rack on your cookie sheet.
  3. Slice your oranges into thin discs.
  4. Place the orange slices on the rack so that they are not touching each other.
  5. Place the cookie sheet and rack in the oven.
  6. Allow the oranges to dry out for approximately 3 to 3 1/2 hours. This time may vary depending on the size of your oranges.
  7. Remove the oranges from the oven and allow them to cool.
