When drying the different fruits, I cooked them separately because they dried at different speeds. This one is with a white grapefruit. I sliced the grapefruit as thin as I could and placed them onto a baking sheet.
My oven's temperature does not set lower than 250 Fahrenheit and this works better with an oven heated to 200 degrees. I put them in the warm oven for 45 minutes at 250 then turning them over and turning off the oven, leaving the citrus in for another 45 minutes until they are dried. Just keep checking on them.
As you can see a few are over cooked and some are perfect on the same sheet. Oh well.
When cooled, I punctured holes near the top and used fishing twine to hang them up, but you can use ribbon or string, depending on the look your are going for.
The light shines through them and gives off such a warm glow.
This one is the ruby grapefruit.
I've hung them on the tree and hung them on on our wreaths. I love the combination of the deep green from the tree and the orange from the fruit. You could also create a garland and use them to decorate the presents along with a little tag.
