    Any tips, guys? I'm getting in a bit of a tiff here [​IMG] (AND have just sliced my finger open under the nail trying to poke a hole in the skin to get me started!

    I always peel oranges by hand, because I don't like the way knife-cut segments taste. [​IMG]

    If you dip them in boiling water and just heat up the skin, it will peel easy.

    Downside is if you get the flesh hot it will get a little bitter.

    Imp- bit of a trick there.

    Had to add that my mom used to eat them whole, skin and all.

    I forgot to try biting it. It's the long weekend. I'm never fully awake until about six in the evening [​IMG]

    Yeah, and rolling it (hard) like he did really helps loosen the skin from the inside.

    I have always hated orange peels jamming up under my fingernail. XD I go the cheaper route and use a ball point pen or the blunt end of plastic silverware to open the suckers. They can not keep their tasty, tasty innards from me!
