Dehydrating Citrus: Lemons Limes Oranges
Ideal for Recipe Flavoring
Are you ready to get started dehydrating citrus? I bet they're probably not on the top of your
dehydrating 'to do' list!
Citrus - Nothing to Pucker-Up About!
Dehydrating citrus is easy!
They are probably one of the
easiest fruits to dehydrate, but sadly not one of the most edible slices of fruit
when dried, in my humble opinion!

Citrus In Drinks
Limes are used very often in drinks and in the famous Key Lime
Limes contain good amounts of Vitamins A and C and contain
Folate and Choline too.
The goodness of lemons limes oranges
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.
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: lemons limes oranges contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
Lightweight And Brittle When Dehydrated
When fully dehydrated, the dried oranges shown in the bowl were so lightweight! They make a really neat tinkling sound when tossed.
Let's not forget that these dehydrated citrus rinds can be great ground up to be used for flavorings and
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.
Dehydrating Citrus ~ Easy!
- Wash the skins of your citrus fruits
- Slice the citrus into 3/8" thick slices and arrange on your food dehydrator trays
- 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.
Vacuum-Seal and Protect Your Dehydrated Oranges
This is what dehydrated oranges look like after they've been vacuum-sealed and wrapped in plastic wrap – ready to be stored away for long term storage.
Check out the deals on Amazon below for plastic wrap.
Target stores also have their own brand which I've used with good results.
Of course Amazon has great deals on plastic wrap, see their offerings below.
Plastic Wrap - 400-foot Roll
Plastic Wrap - 200-foot Roll

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
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! :-)
