Equipment

  • 2 Cookie Sheets
  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients

  • 5 large oranges
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar optional, if you want the darker candied dried oranges.

Instructions

  • Begin by washing your oranges thoroughly. After washing, pat dry with paper towels. 
  • Using a sharp knife slice the oranges into about 1/4″ slices. You can adjust the thickness of your orange slices by preference, but keep all the slices even. Approximately 1/8″ to 1/4″ in thickness is a good place to start.

Notes

Dried oranges will last a very long time. You can expect slices to be fresh for at least a year and a half.
Make these for cocktails or decorations.
Use blood oranges or even limes and lemons.
Store the room temperature, in an air-tight container for 1 year.
