I recently made an orange pomander ball and I want to dry it so that I can use it in the future but I live in a fairly foggy and dreary area so it would be hard to simply set it out. Does anyone have any suggestions for drying oranges in my case and in general?

    I do a lot of dehydrating and I'm not sure this is doable due to the size of the fruit. When you dry things they have to have a way to let the moisture escape. With whole oranges (even with the cuts in the skin) I don't see how it would be possible. Maybe someone else knows of a way. I'd be interested. – NKY Homesteading Jan 2 '16 at 0:06

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about oranges as food, but about crafting. There is the proposed Arts and Crafts which might be happy about this question. – Stephie Jan 2 '16 at 10:41
  • I'd freeze dry (lyophilize), but you need a vacuum chamber, pump, and cold trap for that. – Wayfaring Stranger Jan 2 '16 at 21:18
  • @Stephie sure, that's fine. Thank you :) – Morella Almånd Jan 3 '16 at 0:25
