You Will Need
- Sharp knife
- Metal spoon
Choose an orange
Choose a firm, heavy, and vibrant orange to indulge your taste buds.
Roll the orange around with your palm on a flat surface to loosen the skin.
Cut the orange
Make a small cut into the side of the orange with a knife without piercing the flesh.
Peel with spoon
Insert a spoon into the cut, between the peel and the flesh of the orange, and remove the peel. Continue removing the peel with the spoon until it's completely peeled.
Peel with hands
Peel an orange by hand, without a knife, by inserting your thumb approximately one inch below where the stem used to be.
Push your thumb in a counterclockwise, downward spiral until the orange is peeled. Remove the orange from the peel.
Enjoy your nutritious and juicy orange alone or share with a friend.
