I microwaved the fruit for 2 minutes on paper towel and then set them on a baking sheet to bake at 250 degrees. I took this picture before sprinkling them with cinnamon. The house smelled wonderful as the the fruit dried in the oven. The oranges dried first and I took them out after a few hours. The apples needed about another hour.
Here is how they looked coming out of the oven.
I strung them with red and white baker's twine and hung them under our mantle. They look so festive!
