Dehydrating Limes

   I love to dehydrate; in fact, I prefer dehydrating over canning.  I find that it is more energy efficient and takes up a lot less room.  Today I dehydrated some limes I found on sale.  They had them for 4 for a $1.00.

 When you dehydrate limes, you actually get 2 great uses out of them.  I first use my citrus zester and use it on the outside of the limes to get lime zest.

 I freeze some of it for use in recipes but the rest I dehydrate and grind into lime powder.  This can be added to recipes or drinks.
     Once that is done, I slice the limes with my mandolin and then put the lime slices in the dehydrator over night.

 I store them in a mason jar and they are there for whenever I should need them.  They are great to throw into a cold glass of water.
