How To Dehydrate Lemons

There’s nothing better on a hot day than a refreshing drink of cold, crisp water infused with a dehydrated lemon and a slice of cucumber.

Actually dehydrated lemons can have many uses:

* Prefect in a cup of hot tea

* Can be ground up to make tea or lemon seasoning

* Placed on/in fish then baked

* Can be placed inside a jar of sugar to flavor it

*  Used in cocktails

*  Used as decorations

If you have any suggestions, please share….

You can slice them with a knife if needed but I highly recommended that you use a  Mandoline Food Slicer. It will be quicker, your slices will be thinner and evenly cut. Read the instructions on how to use the Mandoline Food Slicer and you will be less likely to have an accident.

Take your lemon slices an lay them flat upon the dehydrator trays. They can touch but do not overlap them.

Set your dehydrator at 135 degrees F for 10 hours.
After them are done drying, let them cool for 15 minutes before removing they from the tray and placing them in an air tight container.

This method can also be used with oranges & limes.
