DIY Emergen-C

Ingredients

  1. 2 oranges
    1 lemon
    1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger
    2 cups freeze-dried tangerine segments
    1/2 cup maple syrup powder
    2 tablespoons vitamin C (ascorbic acid) powder

Directions

  1. Thoroughly wash and dry fruit. Use a microplane grater to remove colored zest from oranges and lemon and to grate ginger.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Add one to two tablespoons to 8 ounces of water, stir, and enjoy!
