We broke out our dehydrator this weekend and made some goodies. Overall we ended up dehydrating 4 small apples, 2 bananas and 3 oranges (plus peels). I was a little skeptical about the oranges, but KB assured me that he found "some crazy yankee lady" that said it was ok. I think I found the crazy lady. She's really not any crazier than I am...since I've now dried oranges.
The fruits took over 24 hours to completely dry and I was starting to get a little worried about them. The apples and bananas are delicious! The oranges aren't too bad either. They remind me of the candied orange rinds that people make at Christmas. So far I've only eaten the dried oranges, but I'm thinking of making some tea out of them.
