Recipe For Dried Grapefruit Using Your Oven

For this month’s The Food In Jars Mastery Challenge we were tasked to turn our hand to drying and dehydration. I made dried grapefruit and it is a super saving to do this at home. And so worth the wait!

I should have been writing blog posts but instead I spent the day clicking the send and receive icon on my emails. I sent a company a complaint and all I wanted was a response before I did anything else. The issue was taking up my focus. I could not seem to concentrate on anything else, and when I write I need to pay attention. Often there are things that distract me. Sometimes I should try to eat before the hunger pangs become my sole focus. Other times it is when people disrupt my chain of thought. But on this day, it was the lack of reply to my email. 

Today’s inspiration ♥ Recipe For Dried Grapefruit ♥ can be found on Lavender and Lime Click To Tweet

I waited, and waited and waited but yet no response was forthcoming. After 24 hours I sent a message to make sure my email had been received. There are some things I do mind waiting for, and that is a reply to an email or message. And then there are some things that take time. And the result is fantastic. These dried grapefruit took 5 hours. Luckily for me I have two ovens so I could get the tart shells baked in one, while the other dehydrated the citrus fruit. They added the perfect pop of taste and crunch to my lemon curd tartlets. And I have two more recipes to test them out in.

  4. What a great idea Tandy, my grapefruits are not quite ripe yet, they need a few more months, I bet these are fabulous this way.

  6. I have never had dried grapefruit, but I do love fresh grapefruit so I am sure I would love this too. And loved the fact this is super easy too.
