How did I dehydrate them?

I washed the tangerines in a vinegar and water bath. I removed the peel off the pulp. Sliced them into thin strips and dried them for 10 hours. After they were dried I pulverized them in my magic bullet, but you could use a coffee grinder as well or any other device you have for crushing them into a powder.

You can sprinkle the powder in juices or on rice and pasta, yogurt, sour cream dips. Or, mix them into a meat/fish rub!
