First of all the directions I found said to boil the fruit after slicing them...I used just apples and oranges. Here they are in their steam bath.
Then it said to blanche them in a ice bath so I did that...I actually think it was a few steps that weren't really necessary but I couldn't find an easy way to do it when I wanted to. Here they are in their ice bath...
Dried them really well on paper towels.
Then into the oven set at 150 to bake...it said for four hours but I left mine in about 6 hours, I think my oven was shocked at being used. LOL
I got them all out and used them in this bowl for a bowl filler. I also put some in a mason jar and tied homespun around the neck. My camera batteries ran out of course so I didn't get a picture of that. I like the way they turned out.
Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!
