Claire's Christmas Orange...

So I saw this idea in a garden centre the other day whilst I was wondering around the Christmas section in awe. Anyway, a bag of these orange slices/decorations cost £8.99! I maintain why buy something when you can make it much cheaper? So here is my cheaper version:

All you need is:
  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Pastry brush
  • A baking tray with a cooling rack on top of it
  • Oranges
  • Cinnamon

What to do:
  1. Slice the oranges into 1/4 inch slices, discard the ends of the oranges.
  2. Dab the oranges with kitchen towel to get rid of the excess juice.
  3. Pour some of your Cinnamon powder onto the chopping board, then using the pastry brush, gently spread a small amount of Cinnamon over the front and back of each slice.
  4. Then pop them on the cooling rack on a baking tray and place them in the oven at 120c.
  5. Let them cook in the oven for at least 3hrs checking them occasionally.
  6. Let them cool on the cooling rack then use them to decorate your tree (by threading ribbon through them) or arraigning them in a pot porri bowl.
