Looking for new holiday decorating ideas? Here’s one that uses fresh oranges, are at their peak in the winter and super economical. Dry them and string up for a festive and natural holiday garland, or skip the garland and place the dried slices in a bowl or vase, with or without other gourds.
To dry, thinly slice oranges. Sandwich between paper towels, and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and place in a single layer on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 300F for about 1 hour. If not dry enough, bake a bit longer. String with twine and hang. Or make orange sugar by stashing a few slices in your sugar canister.
