Learn how to make a beautiful dried citrus home decoration that will look beautifully in your home and smell like fresh honey-cookies. 🏡👌

Ingredients:

  • your favourite citrus fruits – quantities – enough so that the slices of these fruits cover the dehydrator trays
  • a couple of anise stars

Equipment:

  • a knife and cutting board
  • a dehydrator

Preparation:

Step 1

  • Thinly slice your favourite citrus fruits.

Step 2

  • Remove the dried citrus slices from the dehydrator.
  • Place the dried citrus slices on a flat surface or even inside a cardboard box.

Step 3

  • Put a protective mask over the airways.

  • When dried, flip all the slices, then repeat this step on the other side of the slices.

Step 4

Step 5

  • Put all the citrus slices inside a glass jar.
