Citrus for the Holidays

Citrus for the Holidays

I spent the weekend decorating my tree and making candied oranges. I came up with a spiced orange cocktail that’s really good too, I’ll share that experience next. Decorating with citrus during the holidays makes so much sense because citrus is a winter fruit.

Decorating with dried fruit has been around for centuries, and the process of drying oranges makes your home smell really good! Dried citrus can be used to make garlands, decorate tabletops and wreaths, and of course used in mulled wine! In these last few weeks before Christmas, consider these creative ideas for citrus for the holidays.
