We’re still getting great oranges around here, so this hack from Virginia (from Dublin, Ireland!) will come in handy at lunchtime:
I asked my grocer today to point me to the easy-peel oranges, and he told me that any orange (also: clementine, satsuma, grapefruit, etc.) becomes easier to peel if you gently press and roll it on the table before peeling. This loosens the skin fibers if you do it gently but firmly – do not pound, squeeze or squash – and it really works! I’m never paying extra for easy-peel citrus fruit again.
