Preserving lemons, part 2

Well, it seemed extravagant to actually dehydrate lemons, as I usually just have enough lemons for all the fresh uses I have for them. But since I’d been given bags and boxes of lemons in California, I decided I could spare a few for this experiment.

I put the thinly cut slices on my food dehydrator and set it at 135 degrees.

Between six and eight hours later, they were dry.

They’re handy for travel when lemons aren’t always available, especially added to a beverage — water or hot tea. Or you could string them up for decorations……They really are quite lovely.
