Dehydrating Lemons Limes Oranges

'Lemons Limes Oranges'... better known as 'Citrus'... yet they're probably not on the top of your dehydrating "to do" list! They are probably one of the easiest fruits to dehydrate, but sadly not one of the most edible when dried, in my humble opinion!

But having said that, let's not forget that these citrus rinds can be great ground up to
be used for flavorings and for baking!

If you remove the dehydrated rind and white pith, the dehydrated fruit centers make a tasty snack. The pith is the bitter tasting part of citrus.

Lemons have a high vitamin C content along with vitamin A, and in the mineral department they are high in Potassium and Calcium and also contain decent amounts of Magnesium and Phosphorus.

Limes are used very often in drinks and in the famous Key Lime Pie dessert! Limes contain good amounts of Vitamins A and C and contain Folate and Choline too.

In the mineral department Potassium, Calcium and Phosphorus are the leaders.

Oranges are loaded with vitamin C, plentiful vitamin A, and Folate. In the mineral department oranges score well in Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Potassium.

All three citrus fruits contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.


Dehydrating
~ Lemons, Limes, and Oranges ~

  1. Wash the skins of your citrus fruits
  2. Slice the citrus into 3/8" thick slices and arrange on your food dehydrator trays
  3. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F
    (or per your food dehydrator's instructions). Drying time: between 2-12 hours.
  • Citrus is brittle when dried fully.
  • Please remember to rotate your dehydrator trays for even drying.

Lemons before and after dehydrating

Living in central Florida, we're lucky enough to have a few orange trees in our front yard. But across the street are vast orange groves, and boy oh boy, can you ever smell the orange blossom scent when they're in full bloom!



To me, the orange blossom scent is one you either love, or hate! I'll leave you guessing which side of the citrus fence I'm on! :-)
