The Best Way to Eat an Orange

By , January 31, 2011

I’ve rediscovered oranges after years of passing them by! I never liked peeling them, never liked the pithy white part or chewing forever on the membrane that covered each segment. Never liked juice dribbling off my elbows as I ate them, or the sticky fingers at the end.

Well, it turns out I’d been doing them wrong.

And when you do them right, they’re like a different fruit — easy to eat, juicy, and refreshing! And in January, refreshing is precisely the taste I’m after.

So…

Cut off the north and south poles.

Slice off the rind in strips from top to bottom.

Cut the orange into rounds, latitudinally (like the equator).

Slice the rounds into wedges.

Sprinkle with cinnamon if you like, and eat with a fork.

    Or drizzle the wedges with vanilla yogurt and sprinkle with granola. That was my breakfast this morning – so good!

    Linda,
    Oh my that sounds good! I must try that. I had some oranges with whipped cream the other day and it was like an orange creamsicle!

    I’ve never seen anyone eat an orange quite like that. 😉 I will have to try that, we have oranges in our fruit bowl right now!
