Why didn't I think of this?! Frenchy, my dahlink, you are a genius! I had 15 oranges, bought with a coupon for 38 cents per pound, YAY! I used my zesting tool, put the zest in my dehydrator on 130, and in 2 hours, voila! I will NEVER spend $$ on this in the spice section again. And I do use orange zest often. You saved me $$$$$! Thanks for yet another fabulous recipe!
Yay! We've had two good days of sun and now I have a jar full of fresh dried orange peel! I love this recipe; couldn't be easier & a great learning experience for DD. She learned about how the heat of the sun evaporates moisture from the orange peel. How it and water makes the oranges grow, but without water the orange will dry out. :) This was a lot of fun for us, FT! Thanks for sharing it. Made & enjoyed for the Spain & Portugal Forum's June 2010 Oranges! event.
