As we are in the midst of spring, and entering summer, lemons are quite abundant! This is one of my favorite ways to preserve them for lemony goodness all year round.

I love to use these to decorate cakes of course, but they make great drink garnishes, or they can be ground up in a blender or mortar and pestle to create lemony spices, such as lemony salt, pepper or garlic powder! 

They are also so sweet if strung into a garland to adorn your living spaces, gardens or altars! 

This recipe is so simple and only requires one ingredient, I'll let you guess it ;)

The Steps!

or any of your favorite citrus!


Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. 

Slice lemons 1/4 inch thick. Try your best to cut each slice as evenly as possible so that they all dry equally.

Line a baking sheet with a cooling rack. Place lemons on the cooling rack and bake for 5 hours! Feel free to check on them during the last hour, they are done once the flesh looks like a stained glass window, and is dry to touch,  and the rind is slightly darker and shriveled. 

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
