Dried grapefruit slices hanging in my kitchen window ....
... a fun way to have sunshine indoors all winter long ....
.... when we bring in our fir tree in December,
I'll festoon the branches with these golden orbs ....
Here's the "How To:"
Slice your grapefruit into 1/4 inch slices.
You should be able to get about 6 slices per grapefruit.
Place a paper towel on a cookie cooling rack and place your slices on top of that.
Bake in the oven on super low (I set it to 170f).
After about 1 hour, flip the slices over.
Continue baking until nicely dried - but not brown.
About 4 hours total.
You can do this with lemons, limes, giant pomelos, yellow grapefruit, ruby grapefruit, even tiny kumquats would work. It makes a lovely and natural home decoration, gift tag, tree ornament - you name it!
