Sour, sweet, beautifying and colorful
These Stunning Citrus Fruit Crisps are made with a little hack, that we get weirdly excited about, every time we use it. You can easily store homemade fruit crisps in your trusted mason jars and have them at hand to use them for anything! Because you will.
Now, we have almost 2 gallons of dried orange and lime crisps! Simply wash ’em, slice ’em, seed ’em and laid ’em on sheets, and watch the magic happen.
What can you do with them?
*Add some slices to your water and leave in the fridge. Especially the orange crisps will leave a delicious flavor.
*Chop them up and create your own tea mixes!
*Add a slice to your cup of tea. The longer you leave the crisp more intense the flavor will be without turning bitter.
*Throw some in your blender and make all-purpose flavored powder.
*Chop it up and use to flavor all kinds of dishes, they compliment a salad very well.
*Serve them in glasses as the most naturally gorgeous chips
*Break them up and add to upgrade your favorite trail-mix or oatmeal.
