    Bake at what temperature?

  2. Sarah says:

    I love this idea! I can practically smell them.

    How long do they last? This would be a great way to “use” citrus fruits that have gone past the point of no edible return throughout the year, but I’m wondering whether they can be preserved for the next Christmas or if they have a limited shelf life?

  3. cathy says:

    love the idea of dried oranges. How else can they be used? The smell must be heavenly

  4. Maria says:

    I made disposable tree ornaments one year, then tossed
    the tree out to the birds and other animals. It was beautiful and fun

  5. Alanna says:

    Did you flip the oranges half way through? I found the tops to be dry but the undersides to still be wet. I also found 5-6 hours at 250F to be way too long. After 3 hours I found some of my oranges to be too brown looking for my liking. I am going to try again at a lower temperature, maybe 200F and flip them after about 1.5 hours. I’d really like to keep that orange look to them 🙂

  6. Suzanne says:

    This is such a cool idea! What a fun project to do with kids to get ready for the holidays and winter!

  7. Vanessa says:

    Thanks for sharing! How long is it good for?

  8. Jaimie says:

    Could they be sprinkled with cinnamon to amplify the good smell, or would that change the color too much?

  9. Sav taylor says:

    I would recommend decreasing temperature of the oven, mine started browning after one hour. Left for 3 hours at 250 degrees F & all but 10 came out brown. Going back to the old fashioned dehydrater!

  10. Penny says:

    Using some cinnamon sticks and star anise adds some good fragrance and are very pretty, too. If you want to preserve after the season is finished, you can spray them with hair spray on both sides and it will seal them some. It will take a bit of the fragrance away, but if you store them in a sealed container, they will still smell quite good!

  11. Angela says:

    What a fun idea to do with the kids for the holidays.

  12. Laura says:

    When you string them on the fishing line do you have to knot each one? Do they slide together on the line?

  13. Whitney Pendergrass says:

    If you leave these out so they get soft and a bit tacky after awhile?
