Ingredients

  • 1 orange and 1 lemon, both unpeeled and thinly sliced into 2mm-thick rounds
  • cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, rosemary sprigs or cardamom pods, to garnish (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Arrange the citrus slices over two baking trays lined with baking parchment so they’re in a single layer. Heat the oven to 110C/90C fan/gas ¼. Bake for 2 hrs until firm and dry, turning the trays around halfway through. Check after 1 hr 15 mins, removing any orange slices that are drying out too quickly, then continue to cook the rest.

  • STEP 2

    Leave to cool completely on the tray, then package with the garnishes of your choice.
