Apparently I’ve Been Peeling Oranges Wrong My Entire Life

in Home May 19, 2017

Oranges are one of the most popular fruits in the worlds. This sweet and juicy fruit is known for packing a powerful punch of vitamin C. The only downfall is the sticky mess that comes from peeling this delicious citrus fruit! We now have the secret!

 

This simple trick will allow you to peel your next orange in less than sixty seconds, with minimal mess! Once you see this once you will never go back to wrestling another sticky mess! You won’t believe it took you this long to learn it!

  1. Begin by placing the orange on a flat, secure surface. Using a sharp knife carefully cut both ends of the orange off.
  2. Carefully cut a slit down the middle of the orange, cutting only through to the center. This is the trick that makes it all work!
  3. Take hold of each side of the slit in the peel and pull down sideways to split the orange open. At this point it should begin to unfold to reveal the fruit inside! At this stage, if you wish to, you can remove the pith (the white part of the orange) and any seeds. What’s left? Neat pieces of orange that you can peel off the rind and enjoy!
