Preserved Orange Slices


These are great to use in dry potpourri!


  1. Slice the oranges about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Put two layers of paper towels in a microwaveable dish. Place the slices of two oranges, one at a time, on top of the paper towels.
  3. Bake the orange slices in a microwave oven on HIGH for about 6 to 10 minutes, until the slices turn very bright yellow.
  4. When you remove the orange slices, they will be sticky and spongy to the touch, and the paper towels will be saturated.
  5. Place the orange slices in a preheated oven on the lowest possible temperature, and bake about 45 minutes.
  6. After orange slices are removed from oven, toss with orris root powder and orange essential oil.
