Homemade Mandarin Peels

Don't let your Mandarin Peels go to waste.

Before peeling, make sure to clean all the Mandarin oranges thoroughly.  I used Apple Cider Vinegar to soak and clean the Mandarins. Dry the Mandarins prior to peeling.
2 big trays of Mandarin peels
Pop into the dehydrator and leave it for 16 hrs or more depending on your dehydrator model or until the peels are fully dehydrated. 

The end results of my dehydrated Mandarin peels. Store in an airtight container.
It stays good for years if properly kept.

Tips - Keep dehydrated peels in an airtight container in a cool and dark place. It stays good for several years.
