I really hate it when things go to waste. I had a big bowl full of oranges and no one was eating them. I asked one more time if anyone wanted any oranges before I turned them into a craft. After no one wanting any. I broke out the slicer. I love mine. I sliced them 1/4" thick and soaked them in a 2 cups of lemon juice and 3 tbsp salt for 30 minutes. Making sure they were completely covered with the juice mixture. While they soaked, I cleaned up the slicer and put it away. Then I got out the food dehydrator. After soaking the oranges in the mixture for 30 minutes or more. I laid them on a paper towel to absorb as much juice as possible. You really can go through a lot of paper towels with this part. After all the juices were absorbed. I arranged them on the drying trays.
