Easily peel an orange by rolling it around on the table first
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.
