Dried Lemons

We like to keep things fresh at our Flagship Store in the heart of Downtown Santa Cruz. This sweet smelling display is inspired by late summer, and long, hot days spent sipping on a nice cool lemonade. This easy and all natural fruit display would make an awesome decoration for your next party!

How to:

1. Slice your fruit up into about 1/4" thick wedges 2. You will either need to dehydrate the fruit or dry it in the oven at a very low temperature over a long period of time. If you are using an oven, turn it on to 180 degrees. 3. Lay the fruit out on parchment paper and toss 'em in the oven 4. The juicier the fruit, the longer they will need to bake. Flip and rotate the fruit every 1/2 hour or so. The limes we used only took a few hours, but the juicy lemons took all day. 5. Once your fruit is dried out you can string it together using the fishing line and a needle.

These would look great strung in a line as a garland or strung individually from the ceiling! If you're in the Santa Cruz area, stop by 1229 Pacific Avenue and check it out.
