drying orange and lemon peels
by Jennifer on Jan 9, 2014

I use a dehydrater to dry my peels, then seal them in glass Jars mine look and smell wonderful. Just be sure to not make them into too small of pieces for your racks

Drying

A quick question if I may, and this applies to orange peel as well. I was wondering, how in the world do you dry the peels? I've tried it before where I cut them up into small pieces able to be used in teas then left them out of plates (yes regular dining plates) on my counters for several days until they were thought to be dry enough. Low and behold two weeks later I have a pile of mold in my jar. >.< The only bit that didn't mold was in part of my oatmeal bath mix (for chicken pox and relaxing). I'm sure part of the molding was due to a broken seal on the jar, however I would imagine if dried properly they would've lasted just fine for several weeks instead of two. Any suggestions?

    Hello,
    Well if they were left out on the counter without anything covering them the peels would be very susceptible to bacteria reaching them and molding it. I would recommend trying to dry them in your oven on the lowest setting or with the light on.

Hi, last week I dried some lemon peel, and now I saw that some of the pieces turned into a dark colour? I don't know how to discribe the colour? Almost a lila? While others are really nice white. For me it almost looks like the lemon was sick... Should I sort it out or can I just keep it?
Greetings, Alena

    Hello,
    It all depends on the lemons. Lemon tends to dry in a variety of color. If you feel uncomfortable using them, throw the colored pieces out. Or if they taste good, go for it!

I wanted to thank you for your youtube videos. They are fantastic!!! About a week ago my oldest daughter who is 8 was home sick with strep so we watched ALL of the videos. She loved them as much as I do. This past weekend we went to a health food store and while I was checking out their herbs I overheard my 8 year old teaching my 5 year old which herbs were hard and which were soft herbs. I couldn't help but chuckle. Then my 8 yr old looked at me and said "Remember mom, what Shoshanna taught us, I am showing Emily." I then had to tell her to stop squeezing the merchandise :) but told her how proud I was of her for teaching her sister. Thanks again for all the wonderful information you provide on this site.
