- Select the ripest orange from the bunch. Even though you do not eat the skin, you should still wash it thoroughly. This is because the knife used to cut it can transfer bacteria into the part you eat.
- Dig a metal teaspoon or a knife into the peel and tear a bit of the peel off. Peeling the skin off with your fingers or the spoon will make removing the outer peel very clean and easily done. Continue peeling along the underside of the orange peel until all the peel has all been removed. After all the skin is cleared off, you can throw the outer peel away.
- Pull one of the wedges apart from the rest of orange, and place it into your mouth. While chewing, it may be best to remove the seeds found in the orange.
- Be careful of juicy squirts, but an orange is something to be appreciated.
- Place the orange on a plate. Take a knife and cut it in half, starting with the ends or the stem part down.
- Cut again in half or quarters.
- Continue until the orange is all cut in slices.
- Hold with your hands, near the skin, and just put your mouth onto the orange itself, and bite it off the skin. Finally enjoy the lovely juicy taste!
Restaurant-style Cut Method
- Cut the orange in slices perpendicular to the core. Slices should be 1 or 2 cm thick. Discard end slices.
- Cut the circular slices in half
- Tear orange flesh from the white peel with teeth or fingers and eat. Discard peel strips.
- Beware of squirting orange juice - don't get it in the eyes
- Be careful not to choke on the seeds found in the orange.
