Uses for Apples –
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
Dry Apples for Decorations –
To dry apples, slice paper thin and place slices in a single layer on a baking sheet in 150 degree oven for 30 minutes.
They can be used for dried Apple Slice wreath and Ornaments .
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
