Dried Fruit for Potpourri

More  examples   homemade

At Holiday time I dry fruit in my Dehydrator    for fall gifts. In bags ready to give as gifts. If you don’t have a dehydrator you can use an oven.

Cut citrus peels such as orange and lemon into small pieces no larger than 1/2″ wide. Cut them into thin slices no larger than 1/4″ thick. Slice apples, peaches and pears into thin slices no larger than 1/4″ thick. Save the peels and dehydrate these as well to add to your potpourri

Simmer Pot on Stove / Old small crock pot

Make sure if you use this on the stove you keep an eye on it. If you have a small crockpot its a great way to use one.   Lisa
