Apple and Orange Garlands
Apple Slices: Slice 1/4 inch thick and soak for 30 minutes in a brine made from the juice of 2 lemons, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 cup of water. Spread on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake 2-3 hours in a 200-250 degree oven. Easier method: Leave slices in an oven with a pilot light for 2 days, or until they lose all moisture. Strung into garlands, the apple slices will air-dry completely and "last forever".

Orange Slices Cut oranges into thin slices, lay on paper towels and microwave on high for 1 minute. Flip and repeat several times, then follow directions for baking apple slices in oven.
You can string your slices on heavy nylon thread (like fishing wire) or heavy dental floss. You can also add bay leaves, cinnamon sticks (cut short) and babies breath. Make them as long as you want. Add raffia bows to the ends.
