Thoroughly wash and dry fruit. Use a microplane grater to remove colored zest from oranges and lemon and to grate ginger. 4. Spread out grated zest and ginger on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in an oven on "warm" setting (or 150°F) with door slightly ajar until completely dehydrated, one to three hours. 6. Place maple syrup powder, dried citrus zests, ginger, and vitamin C in a small food processor or coffee grinder and grind to a fine powder. If using a clean coffee grinder, add powder and tangerine segments into a small food processor and grind into a fine powder once more. Place in an airtight container. 8. Add one to two tablespoons to 8 ounces of water, stir, and enjoy! Information Yield 12 servings Cook Time 40 minutes Average ( votes): Print recipe
