A simple orange slice Christmas decoration

Dried orange slices as natural decorations

I love the natural, subtle marmalade aroma of these dried orange slices and like to take every opportunity to use them! This simple decoration matches the cinnamon stick and dried orange garland I featured a few days ago. All you need is a length of festive ribbon!

Dry your own orange slices

Slice a fresh orange, dab off any excess moisture, and dry on a baking tray in a fan oven at 30degC (or its lowest setting) for a few hours, turning occasionally.
