      I just made a small batch for my sister's welcome home gift basket. I used only orange peel as it was already dry and tea from tea bags as I was out of loose tea. I promise I'll stick to the recipe next time. I just saw karen's photo and I had to make it too.

      I slightly misread the recipe initially and thought I was going to be drying the fruit, however, once I got underway, I realised my error! I wondered what to do with all that peeled fruit, before I realised.. squeeze it and enjoy a glass of delicious fruit-juice! Which I did! My peels didn't get particularly brittle, even after 24 hours, so I sliced them up in the end, but they did dry out. I used a mixture of green tea and rooibos tea leaves, predominantly rooibos. I have been enjoying this tea for the last day or two, a lovely citrusy tang which I really enjoy. I drink my tea black, no milk or sweeteners of any kind, and I find this pleasant and refreshing. Thanks Katzen, lovely! Made for veg*n swap#19
