Dried Citrus

Cook Time 4 hours
Course Snack
Servings 4


  • 4 oranges
  • 4 lemons


  • Line the Russell Hobbs DualChef air fryer basket with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Use a mandolin or a very sharp knife to slice the citrus into slices no more than 6mm in width. If the slices are thicker, they will take longer to cook.
  • Place the citrus slices onto the parchment lined tray and select the CITRUS function and bake 80°C for 1½ – 2 hours.
  • After about 1 hour of baking, flip the citrus so the side facing the parchment paper is now exposed.
  • Once the citrus has no more moisture and is brittle to the touch, remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
  • Use as a topping on a baked good, or blend into a citrus sugar. Enjoy!
  • Chef’s tip: Lemons dry quicker than oranges. Oranges dry quicker than grapefruits. Dried citrus can be added to your favourite cocktails for a more bitter taste and coloured presentation.
