Use with any citrus peel. Uses Stevia instead of sugar.
TIP: If you don't have a dehydrator use an oven at the lowest setting. A convection oven is even better. Keep the door partially propped open 2-4 inches to let air circulate and let out moisture. (a dehydrator will take up to half the time to dry than an oven will).
1.Take your organic orange and cut sections lengthwise down from the stem. Cut into 1/4 inch strips. I prefer to keep the white rind intact as it contains healthy phytonutrients (flavanones).
2.In a steel pot add orange slices to just enough water (so it's covered) and bring to a boil for 5 minutes.
3.Drain water and boil a second time with just enough water to cover peel . This time you will add your seasonings. The water will begin to evaporate and as it does, sprinkle with stevia and cinnamon.
4.When the pot is very low on water the peel should be very soft and ready to dehydrate. Taste to make sure your seasonings are just right.
5.Place your seasoned peel evenly on your dehydrator racks. Now your ready to dry at 135° F in your dehydrator.
6.Dry for about 4-5 hours. (Check it after 3-4 hours. You don't want to over dry the peel as it'll be too hard to bite. You want it dry but slightly bendable. It will continue to air dry.)
I'll leave the peel out in a dish for a day or 2, but then it would be wise to store in an airtight container in the fridge. These have a kick of flavor and are slightly sweet. YUM!
Cinnamon works well with the orange, also with grapefruit.
